Re: Mery rig knees bending backwards

Not sure why it would only happen on one computer...my initial thought is that its the pole vector controls on the knees getting stuck behind the rig so it's forcing the knees to point backwards. I've never used the Mery rig, but most fully capable rigs have a "pole vector" control that can be turned on/off for the knees...if the pole vectors aren't already activated, the channel to turn them on is usually located in the IK foot control. It's usually best to find a setting where the pole vector "follows" the knee. Not sure if you already knew this, but hope it helps!

Re: Mery rig knees bending backwards

It's the exact same version of the animation software on both computers, right?

And the character is in the file, not something external that is referenced by the file, right?

Yeah I'm using 2018 on both computers, and I have the character in the file. Both of my pole vectors are in front of the knees to I just open my file and it looks like its suppose to then I scrub through the animation and the knees reverse for some reason.
