Armature Problem

Hi there,

I’m pretty new to Blender and I’m doing a Tutorial about Charakter Modelling.
Now I got stuck at this point:
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:Tutorials/Animation/BSoD/Character_Animation/Lower_body_armature

After applying the weight paint I can’t move the left leg anymore by moving the bone leg.l. The right leg that’s been only mirrored, works fine.
Can anyone tell me what the problem is?

I have uploaded the blend file in the attachment…

Thanks for your help

The leg controller bone is the child of lowerleg bone. For IK constraints, the controller bone cannot be parented to the bones that make up the IK chain. The right side works fine because the leg controller bone has no parent. So just clear out the parent of the controller bone, and you’d be good to go.

Mmmh, I could have seen that, but thanks a lot. Next time I know where I have to look… :slight_smile:
