    Hi , I have an issue , when I add IK handle to the joints it moves the joints from its original place even the orientation of the joints is correct as you see in the video, and also even when I move the joints back to its original place when I turn IK Blend ON and Off it moves the joints again , how can I make the joints still even after adding the IK handle?

    problem I was facing as of the moment was mirroring all of this. my solution so far was creat a group then duplicate and put the duplicate in the group then -1 on X same on blender.

    To line up the joint with the control wouldn’t it just be easier to parent constrain the Joint to the control with main offset off then duplicate the control then press the down key on the key board and then press delete on the keyboard. Then drag the original CTL into the new duplicate, then just delete the parent constraints.

    So I was rigging my arm and it became a horrid mess with multiple IKs and what not. After seeing this video, I learnt how simple it can be. Thank you so much. You are a Godsend <3

    FINALLY! Rigging for FK arms NOT in T pose. I've tested bake pivot and custom orientation but nothing have worked. Finally a solution. TY!
