Posing The Toon Character

Recommended Posts

I'm playing around with the Toon character and I don't understand how to switch from FK to IK arms properly. I've been posing in FK, but with the character's hands on a table I want to switch to IK so when he lifts himself up his hands stay put on the table. In the switchers control I pressed Match IK to FK, then switched the blending totally to IK, but his arm moved. So how should I be doing this?

Not sure. Try switching it to fully IK first before doing the Match IK to FK?

That didn't do it. The arm still moved. The final position seemed to move the same amount regardless of the order I did the two operations.

Here's the file. I noticed that when I did the switch to IK and the arm moved, I was able to nearly get it back into place using the IKtwist translate manipulator, but it would take a lot of fiddling to try to get it spot on. Frame 6 has the pose with the hands on the table.
