    That looks pretty cool.

    I used to have knee flipping problems when not using pole vectors.

    Thanks for providing the Maya file. That always helps a lot in figuring things out.

    Great tutorial Animatix, I had added that functionality to my rigs and scripts and I have found it is a very solid technique and it is holding up well after being added to the rigs I made. One variation I did that had no adverse effects was that I did not move the locator that is used for the No Flip pole vector off to the side. I left it snapped to the ankle/noflip2 location.

    I was wondering since it had no ill effects if there was a reason for moving it off to the side?

    I think I moved the No-Flip PV off to the side out of habit. If it didn't have any ill effects thats awesome. I think i'll give it a try. Thanks!

    Hey Animatix.. Ayhorya here. I have the spine rig from Todd Widop, the guy who riged Star wars.
    I think your spine and his are very similar. I think that it will be a lot more easier to understand this process if you make a video tutorial of the spine you are promoting here.
    I will send you the video from Todd yf you get me a video of yours, we may find a simplify method comparing both.
    Let me know what you think. You got my personal email...
    bye, ahh Happy new year.

    Hey Ayhorya,Did you attend the cgsociety workshop with Todd Widup as the instructor? I would love to make a video, but it might take some time before I can get to it. Was there something specific about the spine rig that was unclear? Maybe I can clear it up for you.
