Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Full-body IK Solvers (IKinema) purpose (ELI5 )

Hello. Could somebody explain why people use full-body IK Solvers like IKinema? I have researched the topic, however, I still struggle to connect the dots, because most of the information I could find was targeted at people who already know the use-cases for such plug-ins.

There are several reasons why this type of software is handy. I have used it with vr games so that the player can have a full virtual body to enhance game-play. I'm not very familiar with IKinema specifically but other solutions (possibly IKinema) also support motion recording allowing developers to create more realistic animations for character models. Basically given minimal data points ( say hand positions using controllers) we can "guess" how attached bones would behave (i.e arms) and use this to drive skeletal mesh animations
