View Full Version : Repeat Walk Cycle

04-21-2008, 07:12 AM
Can someone tell me why I can't get my character to move from point A to point B with walk cycle? When I try to move the character the goal nulls for the arms and legs shoot back and stay there for the distance. What am I doing wrong?

Have you checked "keep goals within reach" - just a wild guess. :)

Try using offset repeat to get it to move forward. You might also try baking the IK and then worry about using just hte bodies forward movement to worry about.

Theres a plugin called cyclist that comes with LW that is designed to make this a lot easier.
I usually avoid keep goals within reach because they sometimes cause some jitteryness. :)

Cyclist is a great plugin
especially for mechanical devices like car doors
Alerons on aircraft and landing gear:agree:

Ik Goals i found to be tedious especially on character
rigs setups:thumbsdow

Usually you can aply it to one goal then copy paste it to the rest. :)
