Hey guys.... having a problem... i just switched to Maya 5 from 4... I tried to make an IK Constraint just like you would in Maya 4, but it doesn't work the same... Wondering if anybody Knows how to solve this.... Well... IF i move the root joint the Ik handle stays in the same place, but the joint associated does not, it stays with the root.... Any idea why? Is there a way to change this? Thanks for your time,
Brian

I have attached an image of what happens when I move my root Joint BTW I also noticed that the joints change color as well..
