03 March 2004, 06:51 AM
Hi, im using maya, I've rigged some characters a couple of times, and this is the first time this problem happened. I set up the legs bone, then I aply a Single Chain Ik from the hip to the ankle and suddenly the chain gets orientated to some other direction for no reason. I've checked the bones local rotation axes and can't find anything wrong. Please any insight would be appreciated.

Yep, this exact same thing happened to me when I switched over to from Maya 4.5 to 5.0. I freaked out for about 10 minutes before I discovered that this is a common bug that is fixed with the 5.01 patch that can be downloaded from Alias. Whew!:thumbsup:

Well, don't you want to use RP solver instead of SC? Give that a try maybe, see if it does what you want.
