Default Low poly rigging

Hi

I have just modelled the low poly character and am now following the rigging DVD. When i am following the dvd Kurts joints are much smaller than mine and the bones between are longer and thinner. This doesn't seem to be a problem until i get to rigging the hands/fingers then the joints are too big and things start to get messy. Is there a setting for reducing the joint size?

I am using maya 8.5

Thanks

You can change it in the preferences. This will change the settings for all your drawings.

You can also change it for the current drawing which will update the sizes automatically. (Note: If you change it in the preferences it won't update your current drawing)
