Description:

Script to isolate part of a joint chain. It's usefull for example to isolate the neck, hand or head setup from the rest of the rig.
This give the animators the ability to limit counter-animation.


Example:

By constraining the position of the shoulder to the chest, but not the orientation, you can keep the arms rotation still while you translate or rotate the body.


Use:

Run the "wp_isolation()" procedure on the command line



************************************************************
Version 2.0 limitations:

  - The wp_isolation 2.0 dosen't support the full name path.
  For example, if you have two joint chains:
  bone_1
    bone_2
      bone_3
  bone_2
    bone_2
      bone_3

and try to isolate the bone_2 the script will give you an error. This is because you have two nodes in the scene with the same name.
I will fix this problem in the next version.
