I keep running into the same error when creating pole vectors for my IK handle. Whenever I set the pole vector, the joints rotate out of position. I have no idea why it keeps happening.
Before attaching the pole vector
After attaching the pole vector
This happens all the time for me. Even when I follow tutorials. So I have no idea why it's happening. Is it because the joints aren't completely straight, but a little off center (the ankle isnt directly under the hip)? They are all oriented properly.
Here's how I do it all.
-orient the joints
-create IK handle
-create circle nurb for pole vector control
-point/orient circle to knee joint
-move control out from the knee, using object move axis
-freeze transforms on control
-attach pole vector to control
Im wondering if I have an option set on something that I shouldn't. There's no options for the pole vector. Just weighting. Maybe the ik handle options??
If anyone could shed some light on this. I would be extremely thankful.
