In Part, 6 we will build the Left Foot and complete the Left Leg. The foot will use a 'reverse foot' setup with controls for Roll, Heel and Ball Offset, Toe Pivot, Heel and Toe Twist, Side to Side and Toe Rotation. We will finish the Left Leg by adding the twist for both upper and lower leg bones and then mirror both the Left Leg and the Left Hand to the right side.

    Mr Goldfarb thank you a lot for your effort.
    Like I think and other artists think Houdini is very capable to make character animation but is very difficult the first steps.
    I know is difficult to record so much good stuff but it we will help us a lot.

    Whoever is wondering (because some of the Hscript code is cut off on screen), here are the expressions per channel, per node:

    ### L_heel_loc

    ROTATE X
    fit (ch("../L_foot_roll"), -10, 0, -50, 0) -
    fit (ch("../L_heel_offset"), 0, 10, 0, 50)

    ROTATE Y
    fit(ch("../L_heel_twist"), -10, 10, -45, 45)


    ### L_foot_outer_loc

    ROTATE Z
    fit(ch("../L_side_to_side"), 0, 10, 0, -50)


    ### L_foot_inner_loc

    ROTATE Z
    fit(ch("../L_side_to_side"), -10, 0, 50, 0)


    ### L_toe_end_loc

    ROTATE X
    fit (ch("../L_foot_roll"), 5, 10, 0, 60) +
    fit(ch("../L_toe_pivot"), 0, 10, 0, 60)

    ROTATE Y
    fit(ch("../L_toe_twist"), -10, 10, -35, 25)


    ### L_toe_loc

    ROTATE X
    fit(ch("../L_toe_rot"), -10, 10, -40, 60)


    ### L_ball_loc

    ROTATE X
    {
    if (ch("../L_foot_roll") <= 5.0) {
    return (fit(ch("../L_foot_roll"), 0, 5, 0, 60) + fit(ch("../L_ball_offset"), 0, 10, 0, 60));
    }
    else if (ch("../L_foot_roll") >= 5.0) {
    return (fit(ch("../L_foot_roll"), 5, 10, 60, 0) + fit(ch("../L_ball_offset"), 0, 10, 0, 60));
    }
    }
