Set animations to happen by laying out markers in the timeline, you can even loop and blend two different animations together, such as slowly mixing a walk cycle into a run cycle. It is important for us that Duik and our other tools are available for everyone, rich or poor, amateur or professionnal. If for some reason you need to undo the rig and start over, you have to delete all the expressions on the layers, delete the zero objects that DUIK creates and then you also have to delete the controllers because for some reason once the expressions and zero objects are gone DUIK will not make an new IK chain from the existing controllers. It appears to be happening a lot with 3rd party programs right now but I have yet to find a solution. And of course, they can be easily personnalized, you can change their colors and shapes as you wish.

The solution If you have moved the root layer of your puppet from its original place DUIK will continue to create the controller in the old place so make sure you start with the root layer at position zero and then it should be ok. Want to Create Professional Animated Characters? It's on a segmented puppet, and whether I IK the limbs separately or do the whole thing via auto-rig the leg pieces distort whenever I move them with the controller.

The goal of a tool like Duik is to make the life of animators and riggers easier. I know it's tempting when you see your animation is moving too slow or too fast to just precomp all the layers and then start time remapping until you get the speed you need but it often causes more problems than it solves, especially later on if you have to do revisions. I would love if you could help me out with my problem. It is even able to loop and blend animations.
