[Sidefx-houdini-list] Forward Kinematics in Houdini
Thursday, 29 April 2010 Thu, 29 Apr '10
Hi. Looking at the implementation of forward kinematics in Houdini, and comparing with Maya. What is the reason because FK is implemented as individuals IK per bone???? No kinetamitcs in Houdini is like FK in Maya, why this different implementation, pros and cons??? The only eason I can think about is to enable to animate FK using translations of effectors or goal nulls rather than directly rotate the bone itself. Whata re the benefits of this point? I am very new to rigging, so sorry if I am missinbg something. Thanks -- Un saludo Best Regards Pablo Gim?nez
