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?

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.

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