Human IK - floor contact doesn't work with certain meshes? WHY?
Anyone has a deeper understanding of Human IK floor contact option?
I am trying to make a guy standing in a small rowing boat, and I want to add reality by moving the boat ever so slightly, making it less static (as if there were waves) This makes a real standing person a bit unbalanced etc. and that's what I want to achieve.
I am trying to use HIK - Floor contact:
It seems to work with a simple plane, cube etc. - but the very same character just doesn't react with the boat.
Is there a specific requirement for the mesh or why do you think it doesn't work properly?
I added the proper connection between boat and HIK Effector through the Connection editor.
I did the same way as described in this tutorial:
2) If fI cannot solve the 1st issue than I may try to "fake" the boat floor contact by adding an extra plane, as simple plane seems to work. In this 2nd case my question is: Can you make a mesh active but invisible at the same time? So I can use it as a fake floor contact, yet it doesn't show up in render or even in viewport? If that is possible, how?
Thank you for any extra info in advance!
