Skinning animation is one of the important contents in computer animation. This paper presents a skinning mesh algorithm improvement based on double weights for the bone bending and rotating movements. When the bone bends, we use the original weight; when the bone rotates, we set the new weight according to the Gaussian curvature in the influencing area. This method can effectively solve the "candy-wrapper" problem. The experimental results show that our method is simple and practical,
