Hi!

Quick question on rigging in LW 9

When you've set up an IK chain on an arm, is there a way to make the shoulder target something else independently of the chain? So, that when you move the arm in either FK or IK it will always be looking at that object for it's movement?

Thanks!

Set your shoulderbone to Unaffected by IK of Descendants. If you want it to target something else, you really don't need IK on it, do ya? :)

Choose a Target item for the shoulder bone? Or you could give the arm top joint an IK goal and set the shoulder channels to IK. 9.5 will have IK blending, so you could have IK on for the arm top joint, and turn it on/off for the rest of the arm.
