Hello


I am having a problem with malcolm, I was working with him I was doing some really cartoony poses, really breaking the rig, then I came back to the beginning of the animation and his spine and neck were looking weird, I tried everything, from resetting all the controllers, deleting all the keys then resetting the controllers, I went to the each controller and check it too, nothing works, I have quiet a lot of animation on it already and would very much appreciate some help!

Thanks a lot!!

You "really broke it" alright!

You have moved a part of the rig that wasn't supposed to be moved. Probably accidentally moved up in the heirarchy from a control.
Probably a node like: grpChest1 or grpSpine3

Once you see which node it is, you can open another maya with a new Malcolm and see what the transform values are supposed to be. Then type or copy/paste those numbers into your other scene on that node.

Hello!

I also have this problem. I tried everything, from resetting all the controllers, deleting all the keys then resetting the controllers, I went to the each controller and check it too. I opened another maya and see what the transform values are supposed to be. Then I pasted those numbers into my scene on that node. Nothing works.

HELP ME PLEASE!

Hello! Like the issue above,
it looks like you accidentally moved a part of the rig that wasn't supposed to be moved. Probably accidentally moved up in the heirarchy from a control.
Probably a node like: grpChest1 or grpSpine3

Check the values on those nodes in another Maya with a fresh reference.

Worst case, use ATOM to copy the animation to a fresh rig. It only takes a few min.

Thank you.

I have carefully examined the entire hierarchy of controls. Everything is okay. I have copied the animation, but the distortion appears again.
Can you recommend something else? I use in May 2016.

This happens when I choose controls Spine1, Spine2, Chest1 and rotate them in the viewport at the same time.

How are you selecting them? Are you sure you only have them selected?

I used AnimSchool Picker. So I tried to choose the controls in the viewer I am sure that they choose only.

Ok good, can you show the problem now?

If the images don't explain enough, you can take a little demo movie with Jing or whatever and post it here.

We looked at your scene. Somehow the controls are getting the rotatePivots moved.
I'm not sure how it happened, but you can zero them out with this:

setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlChest1.rotatePivotTranslateY" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlChest1.rotatePivotTranslateZ" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlChest1.rotatePivotTranslateX" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlSpine2.rotatePivotTranslateY" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlSpine2.rotatePivotTranslateZ" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlSpine2.rotatePivotTranslateX" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlSpine1.rotatePivotTranslateY" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlSpine1.rotatePivotTranslateZ" 0;
setAttr "malcolm_v200:ctlSpine1.rotatePivotTranslateX" 0;
