Hey,

When I try to make an orient constraint between my elbow and a curve I am getting the following error

// Warning: Cycle on 'rightElbow.parentInverseMatrix[0]' may not evaluate as expected. (Use 'cycleCheck -e off' to disable this warning.)

and it does it does ruin any parenting I need to do. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks.

Cyclecheck appears whenever you constrain something to a parent, and then into itself, so it goes into a cycle. Like joint 1 -> joint 2 then joint 2 -> joint 1.

Edit. And yeah, it will ruin your constrains :) often the CTRL-Z doesnt work after either. So make sure you dont parent things into themselves in a long hiearchy. Better example, joint1 -> joint2, joint2 -> joint3, joint3 -> joint1 = problem.
