Pose Space Deformation and RRM

Submitted by: Scorpion_laz Scorpion_laz
Hello Dustin! Hello dear friends and followers!
I’d appreciate if you could give some tips about pose space deformation. Preferably in regards to the new Pose Editor from Maya 2017. 
Shame on me, but I don’t understand, which joints (or controls) from RRM are supposed to be the drivers for the pose deformation. A tutorial would be helpful. The most tricky one is probably the hip joint. 
Obviously, the corrective shapes should work regardless of the IK/FK settings.

    You should always use the skinning joints as your inputs for pose space deformation, because the controls do not necessarily represent the pose (for example the orientations of the FK controls can be in a very different place from the joints when the character is in IK mode). If you are using the single hierarchy joints, use those as your inputs. Basically whatever joints the mesh is skinned to is what you should use in your PSD.

    Thanks, Dustin!
    I’ll try that as soon as I’ll get the next opportunity.
