IK Weights and Handles

Built into the IK Handle are visual indicators and cues, for working with IK Weights across key frames.

IK Weights

When a user has set keys for an IK handle on a chain, and there are differing weights on the individual keyframes, the user will see visual cues built into the IK Handle torus shape used for selecting the Handle. This is primarily a visual indicator for identifying when the key is weight ‘0.0, ‘1.0’ or between '0.001' and '0.999'.
