View Full Version : Foot Rig

03 March 2003, 02:59 AM
How would I create a foot Rig with toes. I would like to have the foot roll and still have control over each toe. Any sugestions would be great.

Just make an extra bone after your "footroll" bone, and then branch off your toes from there. So it would look like this:

Ankle>Foot Roll>Toe Root> Toe1, Toe2, Toe3, etc.

This way you can keep your footroll, still have global toe controls, and add on extra joints for each toe locally.
Hope that helps.

A little confused. I'm trying to use the foot where you group IK's, and when I "Roll" the foot the toes don't bend correctly, Should I be using a different method? And could you maybe post a screen grab to show what you are talking about...only if you have time.

Make sure you are using single-chain IKs from ankle to ball and from ball to toetip. You can then also set up SC IKs for each toe to control them individually. By parenting and grouping the controls the right way you can get ball-roll, heel-rool, toe-roll, ankle rotate etc.
There was a tutorial about this... saw the link in a thread a while ago.
You could also try the reverse-foot-lock-approach.
Cheers, Tom.
