I've been implementing some basic IK stuff for a rig of mine. The arms, the legs, etc. Overall I'm happy with how it's been going, but there is a problem.
Whenever I go to push the rig's arms into a more complicated position (in this case, a casual "hands on hips" sort of pose) I end up with some very twisty deformation at the wrists and shoulders.
There's an option to "preserve volume" for the mesh on the armature modifier, and that would be a decent enough band-aid except I need to export the model into Unreal Engine, which won't accept modifiers.
I think this might be a common issue for newbs like me, but I haven't found a clear solution online yet. Hopefully someone here has some suggestions! Any help is appreciated.
