I find Blending IK/FK is more useful on characters for me.....Sometime the IK just acts a little goofy...but this is great for what it's used on......A floating rock? hehe....nice tut Proton

maybe if you stopped being so contrary you'd be able to finish what you started.

it's still not fast enough. you should think about doing it as a plugin instead of an LScript and consider some of the workflow enhancements I suggested in your original thread.

there's still a lot of button clicking that could be omitted.

Uh, all you said was to make a keystroke for a button that will probably never get used. Who the hell uses one-bone ik anyway?

well if that's what you read, oh well...i guess you don't like feedback on your tools, or are unwilling to read into what i was suggesting. i was refering to an interactive drag/select process so you wouldn't have to keep going back to your window control as you showed in the video demo.

have you thought about contacting the Orthopedic guys to see how you might be able to integrate your 'fast IK' into a more usable plugin tool...hell, they may even use it in their next build.

your fast IK works, but it could really be improved by analyzing the workflow you've created within it to make it even faster and more elegant.

A great feature in Ortho is the ability to set up a one bone IK chain and then use bone breaker to split the one bone into many. Each new bone created keeps the IK settings of the original bone. This makes it very easy to set up a long chain of bones where each bone has to have IK turn on.

I think FastIK is a good tool. You have situations where the bones are already positioned and just need IK setup. I just like using Ortho this way if I have to set up a tail, rope etc etc.
