I have an IK-rig set up for my arm. An upper arm bone, a lower arm bone and the arm-IK bone, like so(front-view):
The IK-rig works until I add an elbow target/elbow pole. At this point, the arm stops bending.
It goes from bending beautifully like this(top-view):
To not bending, no matter where the IK-bone is placed(top-view):
How do I make the arm bend when I have an elbow-target/elbow-pole?
