I wanted to share a quick link some workflow tips. One of my co-workers Dave Vasquez post a bit ago with a tip about IK Arms and how to speed up some of your blocking. Now he talks about switching IK and FK Arms. Most if not all rigs in the industry have this switch and i believe that most free rigs are equipped with it to so just look into it. If not try to get a rigger into adding it for you, but I think it’s pretty standard now. So if you get used to it in school or at home it will only help in the industry.
Check out Dave’s site too, he has some great stuff up there.
