View Full Version : Instant IK/FK

So we have instant IK in LW8.

Can we add onto that and make it instant IK with FK blending? It doesn't seem like if you can automate the IK process, that you could add the FK in as well.

Also, can we get our expressions to read the rotational values of bones controlled by IK for the purpose of bone controlled endomorphs (ala smartskin) without the need for baking the motion or some other third party reader?

You can switch between IK and FK on a frame by frame basis in Lightwave 8, is that what your asking for?

Can you? I must have missed any mention of that. I knew you could animate points in layout on a frame by frame basis but I didn't see anything about the FK/IK.

It was on one of the Siggraph video clips from the Newtek booth, I think there still available for download.
