View Full Version : IK Chain question

01-12-2008, 02:44 PM

I've never done an IK chain setup, I created this simple box-character following a tutorial and then I wanted to animate it, instead of using keyframe animation on all parts I wanted to use IK

so I started setting up IK for one arm and it got all deformed, the elbow doesn't bend and it just doesn't look right.

I will attach my scene so you can comment on it, could you help me?

thanks in advance.

Elbow bends here. It's lacking some control but definitely bends. Do you have IK enabled (global switch)?

it worked for you?
what's the option you are talking about?
I attached the scene just as I used it

Enable IK (+f8) is enabled.

here's a screen shot of how the elbow looks in my computer.

It bends here as well but you have applied IK to every channel. Elbows typically bend in one channel not all 3.
