I have a connection problem. I have a FK/IK arm, a translation based shoulder and a torso. I have connected my shoulder to the torso through a shoulder bind joint (which is in the same place as my top spine joint), connected them through a parent constraint. But when I try to connect my arm through a point constrain, my arm moves in the opposite direction. This is the right arm, I had no problems with my left one.
My arm has five chains: IK, FK, result chain and 2 other ones I used for the upperarm and forearm twist. They were a duplicated result chain that I split in two: upperarm and forearm that I kept splitting by inserting more joints in for twist purposes. My chopped geometry is parented to them.
After I point constraint my IK arm to the torso, when I am in IK mode (I have a FK/IK switch) the IK chain follows, my result chain follows, but my twist chains and the geometry go the opposite direction. So my IK connection to my result chain seems to be ok.
I think there is something wrong with my connection between my twist chains with the result chain.
I have an IK spline in each twist chain (upperarm and forearm). I duplicated the twist chains in order to create bind joints. The bind joints help with my IK solver attributes: advanced twist controls. Also, they are constrained to the result chain. Basically, my IK movement triggers my result chain movement which triggers my twist chains.
I hope I made myself as clear as possible, please feel free to ask me for any photos or further explanations if you have encountered something similar before. I'd like to mention I followed the Maya Learning Channel rigging tutorial from youtube. Thank you!
Have a good day!
