Rigging beginner here:
It looks like that i don't understand the pole target.
I have this very simple rig setup:
The cross is my IK Target, the sphere is my pole target.
If i now move my cross...nothing happens.
If i now give bone1 an angle...it doesn't use the pole target...
Ok, i just found out, if i set the pole angle to 180 degrees, it works, as i would have expected.
Can somebody explain me why it need 180 degrees? is there a hidden logic?
i bend the 2nd bone to the left, and i hoped it would "correct" that because the sphere is on the right. But it didn't do that.
