C4D Character Rigging Basics: Align, Copy and Mirror IK Chains 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).
Learn the basic difference between Inverse Kinematics (IK) and Forward Kinematics (FK), and how to use Cinema 4D's Character Menu Commands to quickly and easily create IK chains from selected Joint objects.
