Sounds like your IK's select each IK in the foot there is most likely 3. Hit control A to bring up there atributes> find the menu IK attributes and make sure all your IK are sticky. Will be a little pull down menu.


If i rember right a few members have had the problem and that was the trouble.

sorry but it dosnt work.

I dont get it I select the IK-handle open the attributes (ctrl a) then i find "IK Handle Attributes" where i find "stickiness" and change it from off to sticky but the same thing happens

i have added a pic of the problem... the body should stay in "in" the center line (marked with red)

maybe there is some sort of expression on the COG thats making it follow the foots movement.
disable any expressions there might be.

it seems there is a relationship between them judging by your screen shot. because the COG seems to turn pink when you have the left foot selected.

I dont have the model any more.. If there is a expression it would be either on the root or the foot controls.. it should pop up on your channel box as a little pull down menu.. once you fine the expression change it so it will say take no action...

This tut was done on a eariler vershion of maya as well and might be found in a different location.
