View Full Version : before animation

10 October 2008, 10:24 AM
Hello guys this is Jordan and i m new in yr company.. Also i need yr help because i m new in Maya and I have lot of question.. One of this :-) is, how can i move all the leg with one "nurb" because now i moved my character's joints "joint by joint". For the accuracy I want it to use it in legs..For example i saw some tutorials who had one think in front to the knee and from that can control all the leg. How can I do that?
Thank you!!!

That's an IK you're looking for. Create 3 joints (upper leg/lower leg/end joint) and go to the IK drop down menu and use "add IK", click the top leg and then the bottom joint to create an IK. When you animate the leg you will use the little cross in the bottom (IK-Handle.)

Do an search for IK in the manual and you'll find loads. :)
