Wrist Constraint to plant hand
on Mar 20, 2007 at 11:02:41 pm

Regarding a Fk/IK arm...
Is there a way to have an actual switch (not blend) when you want to lock your hand in IK mode, then you come out of IK to FK and your wrist orient follows the elbow?

Thanks! .... sad to see Kino is officially gone from the forum leader list. =(

Oh i figured it out... so I have my hand joint placed on top of the wrist joint.. then I orient constraint a null to a locater and the elbow. the locater is point constraint to the root of the skeleton. Now I have to write a script that calculate the difference between the null and the hands current postion.. then switch cool... feels good to figure somethin on my own for once... well almost..
