View Full Version : Add Child Joint - Free Script

It's nothing special really. Just a script that makes adding new joint abit easier and more akin to adding new child bones. As anyone who has used the native Add Child Joint command knows it will simply create a new joint 1 meter away (in Z) from it's parent. If your parent joint was much larger this new joint will look minuscule, if you parent bone was much smaller this new joint will be huge. Both situations are uncomfortable and cause alot of frustrating mouse dragging to get the joint to were you want it. This script simply positions the new joint so it is sized and oriented similar to the parent.

If you like how it works, please say so and also request NT to update the native function so it works similarly. If you don't like how it works, please explain, so I can understand why or when the native way is better. :)
