Problem rigging character

Hi, I've got a problem with one of my characters in character builder, where the character rotates around its neck/head ignoring the fixed points on its feet, also when I've tried to make the character draggable there appears to be a part of the character around the head which is fused to the spot so it just deforms everything around it as you pull the body away. I can't find a soloution so any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Please find my puppet file here:

Thanks.

There's probably a better way to do this, but here's what I did:

I created a "pants" layer in the Torso and moved the legs and the pants group to that. (this removed the rigging from the legs, but those can be added again). I turned of the independence on the legs since you want the feet to stay pinned. I added a stick to the bottom of the pants and set it to fixed. Unfortunately, the dragging still distorts the lower part of the face.

Okay, thanks I'll give it ago but it sounds like that would stop me doing full motion tracking.

In that case, I took the stick out and rigged the legs, making them independent again. The one difference is that I didn't rig the hips, heel and toe, just the knee and ankle. I moved the origin to where the hip would be, but didn't tag it. The puppet seems to be working fine.

I've given that a go but it doesn’t seem to be working, the legs are completely rigid and its still rotating around the same spot

And this is after you created a "pants" layer for the legs and pants group?
