Can't set a chain length above 255
Closed, ArchivedPublic


Version 2.78

I put a lot of detail into making a realistic snake that I was going to use for a realistic animation, and then I found out the entire project is ruined because of some glitch that won't let me set the Spline IK chain length past 255.

Make any spline IK and try to set the chain length past 255.

Yes, we do not support IK chains longer than 255 Not a bug, more like a reasonable limitation. Thanks for the report anyway.

It's clearly not "reasonable" if it ruins an entire planned project. What are people supposed to do if they want a large scene with rope, or chains, or electric cables, or steel cables, or holiday lights, or carnival lights, or a roll of tape, or a roll of tape measure, or yarn or any number of long flexible objects?
