View Full Version : pitch and heading limits in motion obtions

After doing IK on legs, it is hard to find out anywhere how to set heading and pitch limits so that the legs do not snap? The defaults are Min -180 and Max 180.

Press 'm' for motion options, controllers and limits tab, then check the box for heading, pitch or bank limits.

If you mean what values to set them to, tahts gonna vary from one character to the next... However, for most characters limits should be completely unnecessary. If your IK is popping ro snapping, then its setup wrong, and fidlling with limits will not help you, it'll just shift the problem behaviour from one pose to another.

if you want to mess around with Limits on the rotation, before you go to the motion options make sure you are in the rotation mode for the bone and when you tweak the limits, it will show you in open GL how far around the limit is.
