Lesson 4 Use Inverse Kinematics

What You’ll Do

In this lesson, you learn how to create a new IK chain.

Kinematics is the physics behind the movement of linked objects. Bone structures are a good example of a set of linked objects that can be defined using kinematic solutions. For example, because the shoulder is connected to the arm bones, which are connected to the hand, you can use kinematic equations to determine the position of the hand as the shoulder moves. Inverse Kinematics works backwards by solving the shoulder’s position as the hand ...
