Feature Request

free rotation option for FK elbows

Submitted by:gozirra gozirra
I find that animators prefer free rotations on elbow joints when animating cartoon characters. I realize that characters with defined elbows benefit from single axis rotation, but the opposite is true for cartoon characters.

    This is setup as a hinge joint so that it works correctly with the toon controls, and so the user can match IK to FK and vice versa. I also have the option to create a two-elbow/knee setup so this would also have issues with unlocking the elbow or knee. You can manually unlock and show the channels, but I do not support that workflow. Basically, it's a "use at your own risk". The shoulder has distributed rotation through the upper arm so twisting the shoulder can achieve the same thing as rotating the elbow on a different axis.
