View Full Version : Double Joint knee method??

05 May 2003, 01:40 AM

I was just wondering what people thought of the method where you place 2 joints by the knee, so that you get correct deformation when the knee bends. I have tried it before and its seems to work pretty well, but I just wanted to know if anybody else uses this method and if not, why not??

Hi Loked,

Could you please be a bit more specific about your 2 joint setup. I'm afraid I don't really understand what you're talking about (this will probably be my skill-level :)) It sounds very interesting.

I Have used it in the past.. and it worked great on that model 'cause his knees were pretty long.

I think it would depend on the model. But yeah.. I'm all for it.. I like it.. and it's not that much harder to set up.. just and extra bone and you are pretty much done :)

(you could check IK-Joe ( he has this set up

Hey Goosh,

Would you mind just given a short description on how you set this double knee joint up. Really just the rigging part, not the joint placement.

You could download the rig on my site..

go to Free Downloads and it's there.. (Ik-Joe)

If you have any questions on it, mails me and I'll try to explain as best I can ;)
