How do you lock the feet and bend at the knees?

Zizzy 2 weeks ago updated 2 weeks ago 2

I can't find a way to bend the knees where the character will bend completely like a crouch position. Even after IK Setup wizard is setup. You would think this would be the most basic thing rigged. Something must be missing? I have the Pro version.

Hi Zizzy,

thank you very much for your support request.

  1. Select the IK Handle of a foot
  2. Under the "Channels" section of the Pose Editor, set the tick mark at IK Pinning
  3. The foot now stays in place when you drag the hips of your character around.

For more information, please follow the IK Pinning video tutorial:

IK Pinning uses the Child-Of constraint under the hood. You should also watch the video tutorial of the child-of constraint, as there are some special cases you should be aware of:

Please let me know in case you have any follow-up questions.

Best regards,
Peter

Thanks, that is what it was. I was afraid it was due to the hips and spines not being blue/no ik setup.
