Maya 4.5 Orient Joint error

I'm trying to use the Orient Joint tool in Maya 4.5. I keep getting this error.

// Warning: Skipping b7: It has non-zero rotations. //

all the joint's rotations are at 0 and it doesn't look like anything in influencing the roataions. Docs don't seem to say anything. Same w/ searching elsewhere.

Whatever that new tool in Maya is (not a script/plugin)

I am not sure if this is the problem you are haveing but make sure you are NOT in gimbal rotation mode while orienting joints... it won't work.... local rotation mode works best ... i assume you have the joints selected in ogject mode then switched to component mode and are using the "?" filter in component mode to select the local rotation axis..... hope this helps

I'm getting these errors in 4.5 a lot as well, with any script that wants a joints rotations to be zero. Haven't found a common denominator yet.

Why do you ask? I'm interested because I've noticed some funkiness in Maya's rotations after running the script. I posted a thread a day or two ago in the Maya forum called jsOrientJoint wierdness. jsOrientJoint wierdness
