View Full Version : Why does it keep doing this?

12 December 2006, 05:12 PM
heres a small portion in like a 10 second animation im doing when i blocked out the poses it didnt seem that bad but when i turned it into spline there seems to be a pop in the legs i dont know if its because i have an almost straight leg for like 1 or 2 frames only then it gets bent alot or what but when u play it theres a big big pop in th knee area..... first i did do a straight leg on the contact pose but then i brought down the body a little to bend the knee slightly to see if it would get rid of the popping or not...

anyways take a look see if u can help me... im using XSI 5.0 for this one <--(right click, save target as)

Hey man, that sounds like IK snapping from your description, basically dont extend the leg quite as much (so its not quite straight) this is one of the draw backs of IK.

hope tht helps
