Hi -

I'm not sure what the best way to describe this is, so I posted an image -

http://www.turnerdesign.net/stretch/stretch.jpg

Basically I'm trying to find out if an IK chain (or whatever would be used...newbie here obviously) can be linked to itself... um... the illustation should help here!

So, if, in the illustration, the yellow parts were moved apart, the remaining parts would "pull toward each other"...

Sorry I couldn't be more cleare, I'm entirely uncertain about the terminology.

Cheers
Andrew

you might want to try follower instead of ik or fk.

or, an expression might help.
