View Full Version : Arm problem

03-02-2004, 07:50 PM
I'm working on rigging a character and am having some trouble with the arm. I used the rp solver for the ik handle. When I move the arm forward in a punch motion the twist arrow switches to the other side and makes the elbow bend in the opposite direction. What causes this and how do I fix it?

do you have a pole vector constraint on the IK?

if not, you should.
if you do, maybe you just have the target too close to the joint, so it is moving to the other side.
