Cannot overstate how much I wish you had show keystrokes on, because there are certain parts that I'm having to rewatch multiple times just to infer what's happening. @4:32 - 5:00, you copy the bone for the FK dupe then constrain rotation of the IK control to this FK dupe--but why is the chain moving with the FK dupe? I didn't see any parenting and have no idea if you extruded or what. I can see that the FK dupe snaps into place the moment after you select it but have no idea how you do that and can only guess you're changing something in that split second between selecting the FK dupe and moving the entire chain.
You do a great job and I love and appreciate these tutorials, but please have a virtual keyboard or show keystrokes on for future tutorials because I'm constantly stopping these videos and needing to look things up, it's really interrupting the learning process.
