View Full Version : Smartskin's and IK?

It seems that smartskinning won't work with IK'd bones...

The first image is with IK'd bones...

And the second is when the bone is manually rotated...

The last picture proves that the morphing works! But NOT when bones are IK'd!

It might be a bug... Or does anyone know why this happens?

Thanks!

It's because the rotational values for the bones that are controlled by IK aren't able to be read by the expressions that control your morphing. I believe there is a plug-in or two that are basically IK readers, or I also believe that baking the motions will allow your smartskin to work with IK. I've asked for this feature request a few times. It seems like we should be able to access the rotational values for IK bones.

Oh, that's a bit of a downer... I hope they will fix this!

Thanks anyway!!
