I am using the Flex Rig from CGcookie
In the above picture, the blue “bone” which control the lower lip works fine when I move it around by pushing “G” on the keyboard. By “works fine” I mean it moves the lip as expected.
My plan is to control some of those face features using motion capture tracks. I have setup “Empties” which are animated by the motion capture tracks and they work correctly. When I make the above blue bone an offset child of one of these “Empties”, the bone moves as expected but now it has no effect on the lip …which is weird because if the control bone is being moved, the lip should also move.
Can someone explain what the problem is?
