    Anyone know or have a simple (and preferably free because I'm broke af lol) script that allows for proper foot placement using the third-person character that came with Unity Standard Assets? I've tried a few and it ended up with my character running like a crab or something. Maybe I need to tweak that some more, but care to walk me through as I am honestly new to this?

    hello :)

    there's no easy way. the IK only positions the transforms on a chain and
    you will have to find that position (probly by raycast) that you want to place the ikTargets.

    you can use the standard unityIK, but the hip is not affected by hand/foot IK, so probably that's why you seeing that crab-like running (you need to adjust hip height/position)

    there's a more advanced (free) solution out there, but it has its quirks too
