eye bones Gorilla

Post by rar313 » Sun Oct 02, 2016 3:27 pm

I have AS 11 PRO. Trying to understand Gorilla rigging. What do the small left and right eye bones do? I can't move them or dial them. When I undo the constraints and dial them, nothing happens. What is the purpose of these bones. How can I see how they work in the rig?

The bones labeled Eye R & Eye L translate (move the base) to move the eyes. The constraints are there because they're not meant to be rotated. They are position constraints for hidden bones the eyes are bound to.

Thank you. Didn't think to unhide all bones while puzzling over this.

Try unhiding bones with the other rigs too. A couple of years ago, I was puzzling over the Pirate Girl rig's 'skirt collision' effect until Victor explained that there were hidden bones there.
