Animation Problem

Is there a way to lock a figure so it or parts of it do not move below the floor when moving through a series of poses? Rendering of a number of poses where the figure is on a plane (Floor) requires vertical adjustment of individual key frames to prevent parts of the figure from going below the floor. Is there a way to prevent this?

    ik restraints.
    do not ask me how in studio, I have only used them in Carrara and Poser but I think it is much the same
    (not on my computer or I would look.)

    OK, this will take a bit to explain, but here it goes.

    I'm using the City Limits Layout. Window > Workspace > Layout > City Limits > Accept

    With this new layout you will see many icons around the workspace. I select the Universal Tool Icon.

    Then when I pick or select the foot on the figure, the Universal Tool is displayed. Within that tool is a Pin Icon, this will give you some options to pin the foot in its location etc.

    This should help solve the issue.

    See the images below.

    in theory yes, that is what pinning can do.
    i had no succes with this. :down:
    will the IK system ever work in studio?
    can we use the IK from iclone in studio?

    Thanks All; I think pinning will solve my problem. It is a bit tedious but so was key by key adjustment.
