Setting Weights For The Procedural IK System

For further control of the Avatar rigs procedural expressions the IK Controls Setup Panel allows setting of the IK position and rotation weighting per IK Goal. An example of its usage is you have set up a range of gestures that is very wide and expressively exaggerated flinging the HandIKGoals all over the place. With position weighting at 1.0 the hands will follow the IK goals but at 0.5 the hands will move towards the IK Goal but not reach it. The farther the extension of the limb to the IK Goal the more pronounced the reduction of the weighting is. As the emphasis becomes stronger in the speaking performance the IK weighting could be increased in conjunction to emphasize the gesticulation of the arms.
