Feature Request

Extra leg joint

Submitted by:RELIC RELIC
Hey Dustin, I just purchased your rig for a character that I am in a bit of a rush on. Fantastic and insanely easy to use!! Now I realized what I was getting when I purchased the rig, but is it possible to add an extra joint and rotation control for the leg that would be similar to a dogs rear leg. The character is an alien that essentially walks on the ball of the foot with the ankle raised up like a dog. I can make your rig work the way it is now, but it would be so much better with this extra control joint on the raised ankle. Thanks, Craig

    Hi Craig, What you can try to do is lift up the ball of the foot dummy. By doing that, you might be able to get the joints in the proper location, although the control you want may not be as good as what you are hoping. Let me know if that works for you. I am starting to work on a quadruped rig that will have a features like what you are talking about, but I hadn't considered creatures like Minotaurs and what you are talking about. Definitely something to think about. Best of luck! Dustin

    Thanks Dustin, I already did that and it works fine, but when I use the heel ball attribute in the negative the foot raises up. This control would be perfect for my needs if the foot did not lift when animated in a negative value (ie, if it worked like adjusting heel ball in the positive values). Is there a way to stop the foot from lifting when the heel ball attribute is animated with a negative value? Craig

    Hi Craig, I am REALLY sorry for not getting back! I never got a notification of your last comment. Between the Bugs, Requests, Reviews and Forum, it is a lot to keep going and checking each one to see if comments are added. I will bug the CreativeCrash guys to make sure that I get notified of posts. Anyways, to answer your question, I don't think that will be doable with the way the rig is set up. The heel value is designed to be a pivot that doesn't change, and is relative to the foot control. I will look into adding another custom attribute that would allow for rotation from the ball of the foot that controls the ankle in IK. Obviously this is probably too late for what you were needing it for, so I do apologize for this. -Dustin
