Grapple – Set Up IK/FK Script (Pre Vertical Slice)
Created Saturday, February 16th, 2013 | Added Saturday, February 16th, 2013


  • Wrote Python script to help in setting up the rig for the Destrozar in Grapple, pre Vertical Slice
  • Script automated the process I was using to create an IK/FK switch for each of Destrozar’s legs
  • The rig utilizes three legs for each one of Destrozar’s legs
    • FK leg, IK leg, and actual leg to be controlled by one or both of the previous two
  • Script creates a blender node, attaches the XYZ rotation of FK and IK joint to the RGB of the blender, and attaches the blender’s RGB output to the rotation of the actual leg
    • This allows the controlled leg to be influenced by one or both of the FK/IK legs depending on the value of the blend node
