Hi I constrained (orient) the elbow joint with the control in y axis and locked the other axis... When i rotate the control to 85(degrees) the joint rotates along the direction of the control,after 85 its roating in the reverse direction, Because of this i limited the rotation to 85,but i need no limits... How can i correct that? Last edited by Nirmal_c : 25-06-2007 at 12:06 PM.

You're rotating on all three axes at once. Which means that, occasionally, your axes switch from positive to negative values at odd locations. This isn't so much a problem if you're allowing all the axes to move, but it would show up if you only allowed one to move. the other thing that may be producing this (in a related manner), is if your joint skeleton is not lined up parallel to an axis. even if the joints are co-linear, they'll have a different set of rotations, meaning constraining their axes in such a manner would produce the odd results. Does that help? or did I manage to just confuse you.... __________________ Book Wise http://X4nd5r.deviantart.com

I even changed the value in the attribute edditor manually by typing....still afer 85 it rotating in reverse direction due to the constrain...
