Default IK pole vector question

Hi folks,

my character has objects I use as pole vectors for his elbow joints.

Would you normally parent constrain this to the wrist control so that it moves with your arm, or animate is separately for every move of the arm joints?

cheers

seperately works fine for me, i often animate it in relation to my arm translations and to do this properly i need it seperate.

I usually parent my knee controls to my feet and my elbow controls to the torso controller.
