    Hey guys,

    I've got problems with duplicating a rig grp. I setup a rig to control the twist of the arm. Now i tried to duplicate the setup of the shoulder to elbow grp to get the elbow to wrist rig grp. But everytime i duplicate the rig grp, the all the connections get lost. The clusterHandles don't control the spline crv, the locators which are set as object (start/end) advanced twist don't work anymore.. and so on.

    Is it possible to duplicate an entire rig grp without loosing the connections, or do i have to export/import the setup ?

    Try opening the duplicate option box and check the options.
    I think that if you use the flag -inputConnections it might work, not sure.
    Yeah.. sometimes you just have to redo stuff. Any repetitive task can be done with Python/MEL.
    Good luck.

    I'll try it.
    My MEL/Python skills are too low at the moment to wright such a script.
