View Full Version : bone rotation limit problem

06 June 2003, 09:08 AM
Im having a situation I have not yet encountered when setting limits on bones. I get this sort of "bounding box" being dispalyed surounding the bone when I set rotation limits(as indicated by the arrow in the pic). It clutters my display and is quite annoying and it is probably a mere option setting. Can anyone please help

if your joint is displaying as a box? im not sure how that is happening. i thought that was only a option for end joints? your pic is kinda hard to make out, can you get rid of the geometry and post?

The best way to get rid of this problem is to hide the IK handle. The bounding boxes show up when you limit joint rotatations on an IK setup.
Quick step to remove this problem:
1) Make a locator, or other homemede control device, and point snap it to where the IK handle is.
2) Point constrain the IK handle to the locator and then hide the IK handle.
3) If there is something you need to control on the IK handle you will constantly need, you can make a new attribute on the locator and set it up with set-driven keys.
