Howdy,

A new version of CD IK Tools will be released soon. Some new features have been added and a couple of optimizations made. Here are a few sneak previews:

IK/FK blending is now available in all of the IK expression tags:

The CD Spline IK and the CD Spinal have been reworked so that they are no longer limited to only being used with bones. Now all of the CD IK Tools tags can be used on any type of object:

A new QuadLeg IK tag has been added. This new tag is a 3 bone IK solution specifically designed for quadruped rigging:

The CD IK Tools 1.3 update will be a free update for registered users. The price will increase slightly on new purchases, though.

Adios,
Cactus Dan

Howdy,

Thanks for the comments.

There's just a few minor things to iron out and then write the 1.3 update Addendum.

Adios,

Howdy,

Just a little update: The Setup Tool will also now set up the IK expressions on other objects besides bones.

Adios

Exciting. I only just bought your tools recently and they look great. I have but 1 request, I wonder if you could include some step by step tutorials in the manuals, or, if they already exist, could you point me in the right direction? I'd love to get to grips with these tools but being a novice at CA stuff I think some step by step tuts would really help.
Thanks

Howdy,

Well, I'm a little behind on the tutorial. I've started several times, but each time, I get to a point where I realize something with the plugin doesn't work like I want. Then I end up putting the tutorial aside and working on the code. :sad:

Anyway, I would like to do a video tutorial, but my site doesn't have the bandwidth, so it'll be hosted somewhere else.

Adios,
Cactus Dan

Thanks Dan, Can't complain about you improving the plugin but also looking forward to tuts :)
