I guess that's the best way to describe it... and actually, I know it's a very ease fix, but just getting back into animation and I've forgotten.

When using the Duik tools for IK animation of my character's leg, when I move it to position it, it's very staccato, choppy and not fluid at all and doesn't keep up with me on screen. I know it's just a click away to change something to get away from that choppy movement, but how do I do that again??! I tried bezier, etc, but can't for the life of me...!?

It it a speed problem, or a sudden start-stop problem?

Well... I have the three pins to nulls... and then when you just want to simply move the main controller, which would be the foot to watch the whole leg move - no animation yet, just to experiment and watch the leg move correctly, etc, instead of it just moving around gracefully, fluidly, easily as it should, it's more jagged, stuttering in it's movement which limits the positioning, almost like it's fighting me to move. I have had this problem before long time ago, but I just can't figure out the simple thing to turn on or off...

The Live Update Switch is toggled off, perhaps?

YES!!! That's it. And as mentioned... I'm stupid. I just couldn't remember what or where that thingamabob is/was! Many thanks...

Perhaps I should give up this desire to animate or art itself. I can't even remember the basics...

Thank you for always helping Dave... I really appreciate it.
