View Full Version : Scaling joints in Maya 8

03 March 2007, 05:18 AM
Is it just me or is this really weird - in earlier versions scaling a joint had the same effect on it's children as scaling a group or other parent object. In 8 the children seem to stay where they are or scale disproportionately.

You probably have child joint's 'Segment scale compensation' turned on which does just that: tries to compensate for parent scale. Uncheck it and it should work.
