Align, Copy and Mirror IK Chains Quickly with C4D's Character Menu Commands

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use the C4D Character Menu commands to Align, Copy and Mirror IK chains. The Align command makes it easy to align multiple joints so rotation values will be easier to manipulate. The Copy Chain command copies the coordinates for a complete joint chain, while the Map Chain option will paste those values to a similar joint hierarchy. Finally, the Mirror Chain option will paste the copied chain values and adapt the values to mirror around the YZ axis (hold shift to mirror along the XZ axis).
