Default Forearm and upperarm joint deformation?????

Hi,

Just keen to know how other people setup skeletons/deformers to achieve realistic skin deformation around the forearm and upperarm when the arm is twisted along its length, ie. X axis?

I want to get rid of the problem of the shoulder twisting around horribly when I twist the upperarm.

Hope this makes sense.

I kinda create a "double shoulder" joint. If weights are painted right, it works pretty good, I think. I use it in the Character Rigging vid here at SM.

thanks,

Yeh, I thought I may have resort to adding an extra bone in the upperarm and forearm. I was hoping to use some sort of weighting or deformer setup as the rig I want to use does not have these joints already in place and I'm sure that adding bones may screw up the expressions, etc..

The rig is called 'Adanced skeleton' created here in Australia. It is free download 'trial version' from Highend 3d.

I would love to download that tut file. How large is the file?
