Malcolm Rig IK2FK Error

Post by SarpSerter » Sun Feb 10, 2013 12:02 pm

Hey there,
I have a problem with the malcolm rig. When i reference the scene unlike everyone else my malcolm is named malcolm_malcolm instead of malcolm:malcolm. I dont know why this happens but maybe its a part of my problem. I named my abxpicker to malcolm_malcolmMain_PIKR maya doesnt let me change it in to malcolm:malcolm but when i do this the picker works perfectly. Except the ik2fk buttons.

I can select all the controllers from the picker but the ik2fk buttons just gives me an error;

If i select the arm control in ik mode and click ik2fk for the arm
// Error: No object matches name: malcolm_ctlArmIkLf:tgtArmUpLf //

If i dont select any controllers and click it
// Error: No object matches name: malcolm_ctlArmIkLf:tgtArmUpLf //

This happens in all the arms and legs

I cant fix this and no one seems to have a problem like this. I really like the Malcolm rig and i have already started using by making ik fk switches manually. Fixing this will really make me faster.

Hello! When you reference the rig in, make sure your maya referencing options are set to Use Namespace, File Name.

Your character parts should all be named malcolm:ctl...
