IK/FK switch without picker

Post by VictorVector » Tue May 01, 2012 9:36 pm

I'm using Maya 2009, which essentially means that the picker does not work for my system. That's fine, except I can't figure out how to switch arm and leg controllers from FK to IK (or back) using only the movers and channel editors. Any hints? This looks like an awesome rig, and your hard work and help is sincerely appreciated!

You can use the abxPicker with Maya2009 on PC. Just use the correct version of the two provided.

Regarding the ik/fk switching, you don't need the buttons at all. Just use the attribute on the ik controls: ik. Dial it from 0 to 1.

(the buttons are only needed for SNAPPING the one set of controls to the other).

Watch the youtube videos provided.

Thanks, Dave. I'm on a Mac - so that might be an issue with the abxPicker. Found the IK/FK value control, though. Much appreciated.
