  • Modified: Make Joints Hierarchy Dynamic. Multiple joint chains can share one nucleus/hairSystem.
  • Fixed: Reset / Flip / Mirror Pose. Now these functions work for any poses, including different controller modes.

  • Fixed: Biped Template. SetDrivenKeys tangent set to “Linear” (rotation of arms and legs).
  • Added: FK > Freeze Joint. Set rotation attribute values to zero by creating a parent joint.
