CD IK Tools 1.3 update coming soon

Howdy,

A new version of CD IK Tools will be released soon. Some new features have been added and a couple of optimizations made. Here are a few sneak previews:

IK/FK blending is now available in all of the IK expression tags:
http://www.cactus3d.com/IKBlend.mov

The CD Spline IK and the CD Spinal have been reworked so that they are no longer limited to only being used with bones. Now all of the CD IK Tools tags can be used on any type of object:
http://www.cactus3d.com/NewSpinal.mov

A new QuadLeg IK tag has been added. This new tag is a 3 bone IK solution specifically designed for quadruped rigging:

The CD IK Tools 1.3 update will be a free update for registered users. The price will increase slightly on new purchases, though.

Adios,
Cactus Dan

Howdy,

Thanks for the comments.

There's just a few minor things to iron out and then write the 1.3 update Addendum.

Adios,
Cactus Dan

Howdy,

Just a little update: The Setup Tool will also now set up the IK expressions on other objects besides bones.

Adios
Cactus Dan
