Traversing Joint hierarchy in 3d view

Recommended Posts

In the OM you can traverse the hierarchy using the arrow keys.

But AFAICS you cannot do so in the 3D view.

If there were a way, workflow might be enhanced as you tweak a bone chain.  I can see that there would be issues at branch roots (in a downward direction) but for links on a single chain it would be worthwhile.

Is there a way?

Corrected spelling in keywords / replaced deprecated term 'bones'.

That sounds similar to the tree walking functions I just covered in my Python:Spoonfed tutorial. Not quite the same, but I guess it would make a worthwhile next lesson?


I assume you'd want to put that functionality on keyboard shortcuts (maybe J~<up> etc). The ambiguity of several child joints could be solved by a menu that is shown in that case.


Unless, of course, someone has a better / native solution?
