Walk cycle disconnects hands

Post by badmaryband » Mon Apr 22, 2019 1:29 am

Using the walk cycle for a character and want her to raise her hand as she's walking. The walk cycle seems to disconnect the controller from the hand. I tried moving the foot, spine, etc and all of those worked, it's only the hands that get disconnected.

I'm going to do a work around and not include the arm in the walk cycle, and animate the arm on it's own.

But shouldn't I be able to still use the controllers even in a walk cycle?

You need to switch between IK and FK, Duik provides a tool to ease this IK/FK that you can animate on and off
