Bones shortening/elongating when rotated
I am painting weights on this character and I noticed that when I rotate the arm the upper arm bone gets shorter resulting in unpleasant results. I have no idea how to fix this as I am just a few weeks into using Maya and havenít found any similar problems on google.
