Peace Finger rigging

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Ive got a hand that im trying to re rig to allow me to make into a peace finger sign. Its halfway there already but as my knowledge of rigging generally is low, thought id run it past someone here that may know better than me. I cant get the the two smallest fingers to bend correctly at the knuckle joint so please help.

Cheers one and all.

Why you dont remove all the IK tags and animate it in FK mode?
OR you can remove the pole controlers from from inside the IK goals?
it will make it much more easy to animate.

    Hi, This is my preferred hand rigging method via sliders connected to XPresso :

    Wow!! DV.

    I have to admit my knowledge of using Xpresso is very limited although I find the node system in Octane much simpler to get my head round. This is much more than I would've attempted as my knowledge of rigging is also very limited so thank you for sharing this knowledge. I downloaded the file you supplied first and was able to adapt that somewhat but still found that I couldn't get the two smallest fingers to bend correctly at the knuckle to give me the right look for the peace sign. The version I can see you've got from your screen shot shows a much better hand pos but your Xpresso setup is beyond me at the mo. Have been meaning to get more into rigging to learn more but never seem to find the time.

    Would you mind sharing the file so I can investigate what you've done?

    Cheers

    Sure, i will upload it later. Xpresso is not as hard as it looks. Once you start using it it gets easier. 😉
