Connector head/face rig issues

Post by Ikvisser » Wed Feb 06, 2019 10:07 am

Hi guys,

Thanks so much for the great Duik Bassel: so many wonderful features to discover!

I'm working on a head/face rig for one of my characters. I've looked into the different ways of using the connectors for controlling the head/face. For example I saw this Spanish tutorial (RIGGING de una CARA con DUIK BASSEL (16 ) - TUTORIAL) where multiple properties are connected to a 2d Slider. However when I try to repeat the actions I get an error. I came across another forum topic regarding this issue:
It explains to use different nulls for multiple properties.
However when I try to set only one of my layers with two keyframes (min and max position) to a connector slider or controller (connect to properties or select master property) I get an error.
ExtendScript Toolkit says there's an error on line 3049:
"Can not call setValue() on a property with keyframes. Use setValueAtTime() or setValueAtKey() instead."
Also I have to Purge all memory and disk cache and restart the Duik script twice (error 6473) before I can continue again.

Do you have any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
Any help would be much appreciated!

I'm using Ae version and Duik Bassel version 16.0.5

Hi Iris,

Can you download and install the latest version of Duik?
I think this issue has been fixed.

Let me know if it works!

Hi Duduf,

Thanks for the quick reply!
I've downloaded the latest version and unzipped the folder in ScriptUI panels.
However I can't open Duik from Window. I have to go to Scripts.
Maybe it's still referring to an older version, because it says 16.0.5.

Am I missing a step?

Thanks again!

I fixed it: I replaced the older Duik Bassel.jsx version in the Scripts folder and for extra measure I pasted another Duik Bassel.jsx in the ScriptsUI panels next to the complete folder. Now it works :) I'm sorry for the trouble!

I will try the Spanish tutorial again!
