Bend Stress is useful for wave movements of articulations.
You can choose to move a root joint, or a non-root joint (parent).
How it shows, you can use “Stress Create” to test your character rigging, or can use it to correct the skinning of your character in real time, without the needed to move single parts manually or create some animation.
The script is downloadable (for free) on Creative Crash here.
Your feedback will be very useful.
