One layer IK + Goal (feet don't stay on the ground)

Post by Wotje » Fri Feb 16, 2018 3:24 pm

Hi Duf Duf Team,

I'm having a problem creating a character with a leg (made out of one layer) and a foot connected to this layer. I want de foot to stay in place when I move the pelvis (body) of the character down. But, different from a two layer IK, the foot doesn't stay in place. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you very much,

Kind regards,


(I'm not using puppet tool, I want it to be like cut out style, using one layer for the leg, very simple ;) )

IN this link a illustration of the problem:
