The Object Parameters
rollout lets you set IK parameters for an entire hierarchical chain.
This topic covers the
Terminator check box; other parameters on the Object Parameters
rollout are covered in the following topics:
Position / Orientation / Bind to Follow Object (HD Solver)
Precedence (HD Solver)
Copying, Pasting, and Mirroring Joint Parameters (HD Solver)
Sliding and Rotational Joints Rollouts (HD Solver)
To create a terminator in any hierarchy
or HD IK chain:
an object in any hierarchy or HD IK chain that you want to be the
- On the Hierarchy
panel Object Parameters rollout, turn on
The terminated objects
will not move when you use Interactive, Applied, or HD IK animation.
Sets the base of an IK chain
by defining one or more selected objects as terminators.
Turn on Terminator to
stop calculation of the kinematic chain before it reaches the root object
of the hierarchy. A terminator object stops calculation at the terminator's
child object; the terminator itself is not affected by the IK solution.
This gives you very precise control over the behavior of the kinematic chain.
