    Pole Vector Twisting Ik Rigged Model

    I have tried this with a whole bunch of frames including frame 0 and also a range of frames. I have also tried changing the format, but nothing has worked. The dynamics are clearly the problem because when it works fine when I just disable them.

    Pole Vector Twisting Ik Rigged Model

    Ok so I ended up using dynamic ik, but now my project refuses to render to the picture viewer. Rendering the current view works fine, and rendering to the picture viewer with dynamics unchecked works fine, but as soon as I enable dynamics, the picture viewer window does nothing and just shows a black image. Any ideas why this is happening?

    Pole Vector Twisting Ik Rigged Model

    Thanks so much for everyone's suggestions. I think I will implement dynamics as it look like the easiest way to some realistic movement.
  4. I'm very inexperienced, but I have been trying to make a more complex rig than I have done before. I'm trying to create a simple octopus model, with IK rigged arms that are able to bend in both direction. When I bend an arm one way, it works perfectly. However, as soon as it crosses over the pole vector to bend the other way, it creates an weird twist in the arm. Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance, and I have attached the file and pictures of bending the arm both ways. Octopus.c4d

    Graphics Driver Error Crash

    Ok, so I realized my graphic drivers were not on the latest version like I thought they were, so I updated them and got a whole bunch of new problems. Now the program is unusable when open gl is turned on as it has about a 10 second lag. I tried the fix that ABMotion suggested, and now every time I restart the program to enable open gl, c4d automatically disables the setting so I can't use it. Thanks so much for everyone's help, and I'm open to any more suggestions, but I think this is really a lost cause. I'm just going to have to deal with the lag without open gl, or I will have to just get some better hardware.

    Graphics Driver Error Crash

    I have already updated to the latest drivers. I'm confused on why the program runs smoothly without lag most of the time, but then crashes at seemingly random times (maybe once every 30 minutes or so). If the graphics card was the problem, why doesn't c4d crash as soon as I open the program or start doing anything in a project?
  7. Hi, I'm a relatively new user of C4D, and the program frequently gives me a "Graphics Driver Error" message before crashing. I turned off hardware open Gl and that seemed to stop the crashing but it makes the program really hard to use, as simple actions like panning and zooming are extremely laggy. My operating system and graphics drivers are updated to the latest versions. I'm using R19 student version on Windows 10 with a Intel Core i5-3230M (2.6 GHz) with Intel HD 4000 graphics. I know my graphics card is really bad, but it works ok for my simple needs and I can't buy a new one. I enabled auto-saving so I won't lose any work, but the crashes are really annoying and make it hard to get anything done. If anybody could help it would be great.
