What's best? IK Armatures or Empties?

(humphrey) #1

I’ve found all different tutorials on the net about how to animation in Blender.
Most of them use empties to control the armatures, but the tuts on blenderChar use dummy IKA’s.

Which is the best way? Or can I use emties to control the dummy IKS’s??

They both accomplish the same thing. Eitherway will work. You could use your own objects as well… and just keep them on a hidden layer when rendering.

Don’t use empties – that was the old way.
Use the dummy bones – then you have
access to the awesome power of the
action window (empties don’t work with this
