Torso Translation is scaling the feet

waylow I notice when the Torso control translates along the Z axis the feet scale in and out. When the torso moves to the point where the legs stretch this effect is most present. Are they supposed to do that? I have a feeling in any type of walk cycle the feet are going to look like they are "wobbling" a bit.
*Note this only happens while the feet are set to IK in world space*

  • I've found if I select the Foot_FK (left or right). Then go to the Bone properties under Relations and uncheck "Inherit Scale" the scaling no longer occurs. But I guess I'm not sure if I'm breaking functions that are meant to be there. Seems to be working really well so far otherwise.

    I'm not sure what you mean Phil, can you send a screen shot or a video.

    I'm hoping that it isn't broken in 2.80 as I am actually using 2.81.

    (I haven't messed with any of the new scale options in this rig - but I have in others)
