      I followed the instructions in the documentation, and got to this point:


      Now when I hit play the armature moves, but the mesh doesn’t follow. I tried following instructions online but didn’t work.

      Could you explain how to animate it?
      Thank you

      Hi Federico. Thanks for your interest in Pyrite. Did you get any kind of error when you used the plugin? This sometimes happens when the mesh can’t be parented to the armature with automatic weights. It’s a limitation of Blender itself. You might try reducing the number of mesh vertexes (perhaps using Blender’s "Merge by Distance’ feature or the Decimate modifier). Fewer "bones" could also help (increasing the numbers in Pyrite’s Simplify Trajectory subpanel).

      Perhaps this link could help: https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/94633/parenting-with-automatic-weights-bone-heat-weight-failure

      Take care.
