TikTok Re-Rigging


I’ve successfully re-rigged TikTok. He’s a lot easier to pose now. I’m so glad that Lightwave updated and rewrote its rigging system. This pose took no time at all to achieve. Some of the technical hurdles on TikTok involved the fact that his waist needs to stretch and move while the two halves of his body need to rotate independently as well.

I also had a big issue with the rig popping and jiggling when I was moving the extremities. I was able to fix that with a simple tick of the check next to “Ignore IK of Descendents”. Apparently it was recalculating the IK of all of the extremities every time I moved just one hand or foot. Luckily that fixed it. Things really stay put once I move them there.
