Smooth joints for more than two bones - Tutorial

Post by Víctor Paredes » Tue Feb 24, 2015 6:44 pm

Hi, in another thread, Greenlaw asked for a way to use "Smooth Joint for bone pairs" for three bones instead of two.
Officially, it's not possible, you only can use two bones for each image. But after reading that ask, I figured out a little trick that allows you to use as many bones as you want for a single* image. Please check the video tutorial, it's not too loong :roll:


*Actually, it involves duplicating the image layer.
