  2. How to setup an animatable pivot in maya using constraints.

    The parent_loc position changes after setting the animatable pivot up ( if outside of the origin ), this means that the parenting of the objects to the locator need to be done after the initial setup. The top group can be parented, scaled, translated and rotated without destroying the setup.

  4. A tutorial about setting up a leg with a "kneeTwist" attribute instead of using pole vectors (sort of). This will create an IK leg that won't flip or snap when brought up around the waist.
