After seeing the kinds of animations that could be made for the Sims 3, I decided to give it a try. I've been through several tutorials which proved helpful in teaching me how to utilize animation programs. But the one thing that bothers me about the tutorials is how they only touch upon the removal of IK chains but never go into explicit detail about how they can impact an animation. I've been dabbling in animations for only a few days now and I can tell that something is preventing the lower body and legs from moving properly. I suspect that this is probably because I never removed the IK chains but then I don't know how! If someone could give me a step by step tutorial on how to remove IK chains, I would be most grateful.

To make it easier.. why not use the Jazz_Utility I uploaded? It already has all of the IK chains removed.

i quote Orangemittens:

"To delete the IK chains open the CLIP in Grid, choose IKTargetInfo/IKChains. Hit the little box on right and delete the IKChains."

I don't think I can open the CLIP in grid. It's grayed out in S3PE for me. I heard somewhere that I needed an updated version but as far as I know, I have the most up to date version. Know I need to know how to make the CLIP accessible As for downloading the Jazz_utility, it is helpful, but I was hoping that I could learn how to remove IK chains on my own.

Has it prompted you to download the updated version? And if not, try running it as administrator... and do you have a 32 or 64 bit computer? You should have downloaded the S3PE for whichever bit your computer is

Ciao !!! Sorry for bad English I'm Italian

I'm new on Sims3 Modding.. I try to convert Mocap to Sims3 Rig

Or you could save yourself the trouble and just use the a_xevt_701 Clip that has no IK. I tried your .smd on it and it works no problem:
