Hey all, haven't been posting here much but been learning a lot from al of you. My question is regarding Jason's Leg rig from his second DVD, which I have now built successfully in Cinema 4D. My question is regarding a heel pivot Having the fooot control axis at the ankle is great, and different from how I've always done it in the past, but now I"m finding while doing a small animation test, that the only way to pivot on the heel is to manually positions everything each frame, which is not ideal, if there a way I could also build in a heel pivot that I"m missing? I've though about making everything thats child of foot control child of a heel pivot, then making Heelpivot a child of foot control and creating a slider to control both a heel Lift (rotate X) and though typicaly you wouldn't need it (my heel protrudes back a bit) a heel twist (usually you'd still rotate Y on the foot control for turning on the heel) So I tried this, and it failed miserably I"m not sure why, Anyideas as to how it should be done, I dont' see why it can't.
