I was wondering and I know there are a lot of different ways of doing things. The topic? Not joint orientation as far as XYZ, ZYX or YXZ or any other combo ;), but rather which direction the axis’s point.
- I learned X always pointing “down” the chain(or up if going up the spine), however, after that, I didn’t really “learn” the rest per se’.
- Y pointing outwards from the spine(pointing in the -zed axis) or Y pointing in the +zed axis?
- If it (Y) points towards the back of the back(-zed), should it be pointing up or down on the foot’s position joints?
Just curious what the standard, would be for the first point and the other questions are more technical than choice, as they would be directly impacted if properly oriented :).
Just wanted a discussion possibly to help others with this basic, yet tricky concept if not paid attention to.
Also, if folks from gaming to animation studios could put their 2 cents in about “their” company standards that would be great :).!
Have a happy holiday!
