Rigged character won't stay down...

Hey,

I only just installed Animate. I have a character symboled and rigged using the bone tool. Everything was working fine, but now when I lift the hand/arm/leg the entire body lifts off the baseline. I think it should be a simple fix but I've been all over the f**king screen trying to get it to stop.

Thanks

DH

Hi mate,

 

Since you are just starting with Animate, save yourself much time, pain and frustration and never touch the bones/armature again. It is unusable for any practical purposes.

 

Try to see if the in-built Layer Parenting works for your needs or invest some time and move on to Smart Magnet Rigs.

Thanks so much n_tilcheff!

I'll scrap the bones workflow (although I thought the constrain degree icons at the joints were a nice visual) and I'll go with parenting.
