maya2008 FullBody IK problem

Hey. Im banging my head to wall here.
yesterday everything worked fine. Im makin a fully automized rigger with mayas
full body ik system but suddenly my rigs wont work as full body. when I pull my
hand efector the shoulder and rest of the body doesnt follow.
same thing with feet. I dont know what I have messed with python.
Not even a restart of maya help.

argh please help

even in a completely new scene the fbik examples wont work.. yesterday they did.
other issue with fbik is when adding extra pivots you cant pin/unpin these from right mouse button menu

Modify > Evaluate Nodes ... are they all checked?
  09 September 2008
yes all checked. I tried check/unchecking but no help. normal ik is working
but no full body effect
edit: this is so weird. I tried with other computer and everything is ok there.
edit2: the realistic shoulder solving works when set to 1.

argh. fbik started to work!!

In my setup I had made a second animation skeleton witch drived the skinned skeleton.
and the fbik drived the animation skeleton. I tested my script so that I would have only
one skeleton whitch would be driven directly the fbik.. and full body effct came back!!


and now all fbik examples work also..
ps. and when I tested again with double skeletons all worked. argh

now it stopped working again!!

I was just testing animation with it.
and using only one skeleton.
seems that I have to create my own rig.

doesnt anybody use this fbik rig?

I'm just starting to use FBIK and I've run into problems that don't make sense. Maybe I shouldn't use it after all. What are the advantages, if any? Seems like no one has regular success with it.

Kojala, did you give up on it in the end?

its buggy but you can get decent results for quick simple stuff. try using the biped factory plugin @ and u can get a quick rig setup. dont use it with animation layers or it will screw up, also alot of times editing animation curves maya will crash it so u need to back up .

i use it cause i just like the feel of the rig when it works and i find it very quick and controllable. there are more advanced rigs out there like anzovins but i think FBIK is easier to use.

i think its use able for shorter projects
