View Full Version : What is an ikSCsolver?

Inverse Kinematics Single Chain solver, if I got it right?

In the tutorials on rigging I've done so far the tutor has always recommended we use the ikRPsolver for legs and arms. The given explanation is that ikRPsolvers will make it possible to control the arm/leg's twist - the direction of the character's knee's/elbow's.

But, then, when would you use the ikSCsolver?

Thanks :)

the RP solver stands for Rotate Plane. So when the shoulder, elbow and wrist make a 'plane' when the elbow is bent.
the SC solver is good for when you need an IK between only two Joints. If you look up some Reverse Foot joint setups they often have Single Chain Solvers.
