Hi Final IK is a great program.

i have a couple of small questions

First Just wanted to ask if the Bend Goals are working on VRIK arms .  I create and set a target in the Bend Goal and set the Weight to 1 but the elbow does not rotate towards it.??  

Also tried the Twist relaxer script which works great till it reaches a limit where it suddenly flips the arm around backwards.  is there any way to keep this from happening??

Thanks VengefulColon

Yes, they should be working. Sure it was "Bend Goal Weight" you set to 1 instead of "Rotation Weight"?

There's now way to get around the twist relaxer flipping issue, sorry, there is a singularity point at 180 degrees of rotation.

Thanks ill check to make sure that i had the right one.  

If it works i wont need to worry so much about the twist relaxer flipping as the elbow can help keep it within 180 degrees   I hope.  :)

i was thinking if there might even be a way of checking and stopping  the rotation just before it flips. ??

All the best

Thanks yep i had the correct settings.  But i did find the problem..

I was targeting an object that was attached at an offset from the VR controlled hand.

After some experimentation I found that objects that are children of the main character don't work as targets.  so i created a second target then on each frame update its position to the same as the child. and it works.

Thanks for your Help.
