Default Skeleton Probs

The size of the joints seems to be quite large and i have no idea on how to make them smaller, the scale tool doesn't have an effect on them. Any Ideas?

Default Easy.

Hey schmick,

Just go to the Display menu in the top left of your screen then near the bottom of this menu you'll see something that say's Joint size, change this to 25%, and there you go.

Hope that helps.

if you want him to be able to bend his knees and elbows, you'll need joints there. Also, in order for him to bend at his back, you'll need both the divisions present as well as a joint chain between his collar bone and pelvis.

looking forward to it.

His only bending parts are:

Fingers
wrists
legs
feet
&
head.

And probably the corks, but i'm not worried about that just yet
