: Okay, i draw the bones right, set their rest positions all nice, then i go to set IK goals to null objects - and it SCREWS THE WHOLE THING UP!!! I'm adding null objects at every friggin joint...the manuals arent of any help - whats going on??

: before IK: -*-*-*-

: * *-
: after IK: / \ /
: *
: can anyone help??

the null should be placed at the pivot point of the bone you are linking it to. also make sure you have the ik chain ending with the appropriate bone. setting limits should help also. someone on the q2modeling mailing list said that sacaling down the object for ik helps prevent this but i've never had to scale down any of my objects. oh btw i thought the manuals were very helpful..
