Hello,
I need help with the Toon Rig: how can I keep the arm to squash & stretch when I move the elbow ?

When I move the hand, the elbow move accordingly, but sometimes, the elbow goes in a wrong position. So I need to move it manually, what can keep me from stretching the arm and not maintaining its shape.

See my screenshot for example.

Thank you for your help !

Hi vincent.tirtiat,

Please post questions in the Q&A forum. In addition, direct related questions to a specific tutorial can be asked by pressing the Help button under the tutorial.
Thanks for considering it. Otherwise, the forum becomes hardly readable. Hence why I have moved your post.

Please share the file. I can’t see the elbow controller, so it is hard to reproduce. Thank you for your effort; I appreciate your idea of making it easy for me. Images often contain only a minimal amount of information compared to a scene file.

(If you share an external file: I click only on primary cloud services: Dropbox, Amazon, Wetransfer, Apple, Adobe, for security reasons, I share too many files to take risks). If you need an upload link, as the attachment system here requires zip and is very picky with that [yes, all about security], let me know, I’m happy to set a temp URL up)

Have you tried to move the Pole? That seems to be the problem here; I can’t reproduce it in any other way. But well, questions always feel like a waste of time, compared to a scene file grin
So, here is one, and please have a look if that works for you.

Hi vincent.tirtiat,

Thanks for taking it with humor.

These rigs are not simple. For example, in a studio setup, you would have the TD [technical director] “next room” for a bit of talk when the rig would be given to you. No idea how to put this in a tutorial without boring most artists with all the details.

In the early ‘90s, I helped to integrate a CAD (Allplan) team into our office. Each time someone didn’t know what a button was for and hadn’t checked the manual, a donation had to be made. I often think about that time: after nearly 25 years of using Cinema 4D, what is that button for? It happens. I never would judge. Please never think that I evaluate or extrapolate what I get here as a question. To not ask is THE mistake.

We all learn constantly.

Enjoy your weekend.
