Poll Results: IK Spine?


Spines with both FK and IK controllers seem to be more and more common these days. I've only played around with them very briefly, but haven't felt the need to use them yet. I can see it definitely being good for things like squash and stretch in the torso or for characters on all fours.

I have a new character model/rig that I've been working on lately. It's always good to have both options, but since I don't know how to set one up yet, I just wanted to see if it was in my interest to take the time to learn, since I still need to learn animation:)

um, I think blogger just ate my comment...

anyway, I think that IK spine (and arms) is more useful when you are leaning more cartoony and needing more wacky strong poses. Jeff Kim has a great example in his January 11 second club entry
