DUIK 3-layer IK
on Jun 14, 2017 at 12:28:16 pm

Hello Everybody,

I have worked now in a few projects with DUIK and I was able to rig simple characters and was quite happy with it.
I never bothered to really dig deeper in the ik chain options in DUIK 15 as the chain contained always upper-arm/lower-arm/wrist and everything worked fine with 2-layer-chain with goal.

Now I am trying to get a 3-layer-chain done but whenever I click the ik-chain button on the interface and choose the 3-layer-option the layer do not stay in line and position in a weird way where I can not really see the relationship between the controller with the layers.

Here the lineup:
After Effects CC 2015
Three custom shapes (random shapes build with the pen tool)
One Controller

I made test with shape layer built with the rectangle tool and it worked just fine. But from the moment where one of the shapes was build with the pen tool the elements lign up weird as soon as the ik chain gets applied.

Anybody experienced that problem and has a work around?

Thanks a lot!
