View Full Version : IK fingers

08 August 2006, 02:03 AM
I have red control objects (IK) on the ends of my control rig fingers but I can only rotate the yellow controls (FK). Shouldn't I also be able to move the red ones?

Is there some way to turn this on and off?

Make sure that your keying mode in the character controls window is set to either Full Body or Body Parts. The finger IK effector won't work when it's set to Selection. When set to Full Body or Body parts it'll move and rotate (finger curl), fine.

Also make sure the reach T & R is blended to 100% for the finger IK controls if you want to use IK. The IK effectors don't do anything if they're blended to FK.

You should translate the IK, not rotate. IK will calculate the joint rotation for you.

Art ;)
