View Full Version : Frustrating Rig Problem

02-11-2005, 02:56 PM
Hey guys,

I've encountered a problem with a rig I just set up that is really irrating. I got through to just simple IK Legs and Arms, using 4 nulls (one for each appendage). And it worked just fine. Then I opened another scene, 'loaded objects from scene'. Did some stuff there, didnt save anything, closed it and went back into the Rig scene again.

Now all of a sudden the arms wont respond to the bones. I've attached some pics so you can see how no matter where I position the bones the arms just sit there lifeless. The leg ones work just fine.

I dont know what happened or how to fix it, I guess I could just redo the rig, but is it just gonna do it again? I'd prefer to just figure out whats happening here.

Did you check to see if your arm bones are still active?
Did you check that the weight maps are ALL matched correctly ?
Good luck.

Hey taproot

The bones are active, and I didnt have any weight maps on there yet, I was waiting till I made a rig I was happy with, fairly new to this so that I could save the time of having to keep doing it over again.

Though I did just slap some quit maps on there and it didnt seem to have any differance.

I'm playing around with some stuff to see if I can figure it out, but I'm not having much luck.
