Reversed JCMs?

Hi there.

I'm likely missing something obvious here, but I'm trying to rig up muscle deformtions to my characters' joints using JCMs. Things like the bicep flex are working fine. I'm adding the bicepflex to the forearm bend axis as a subcomponent as a DeltaAdd with a value of about
-0.020000 and it's working well. However, the Tricep needs to work in reverse so that it is full-on when the arm is straight, and decreases as the arm is bent.

Anyone know if this is possible?

Many thanks

    You'd need a hidden channel set to 1 permanently Link the triceps morph to that (at +1) and to the bend parameter at -whatever. That way, when the arm is straight the input will be 1 - 0 = 1, and when bent it will be 1 - max * -whatever = 0. Some characters wil already have a hidden channel set to 1, in which case use that - since it's a constant you don't need a separate one for each morph you want to do this to.

    Awesome. Than'ks for such a speedy response!

    I'll try it out.

    There are also many tutorials in our Document Center. We have been working hard to update the tutorials for creating content. You can find the information here: http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/publishing/start

    This should be a great help.
