I'm sure nature gave me orangutan arms!

Every track I do seems to lose track of my forearms because the wrist of the actor doesn't reach my wrist.

I can't adjust the height any more either. Having a slider for arm length would solve a lot of my problems!

Thanks for reading, I'm off to climb a tree!....

Hi, thanks for request. We plan to give more adjustments to the model, including limbs length variations, presumably in v3.

I agree. It seems my arms, too, are too long compared to the iPi model :)
Arm length often goes together with leg length, this is different between ethnicities so it should definitely be settable!

This has been a long standing request of mine too (although I already knew they were working on a more adjustable actor.) My problem is that my torso is proportionately longer than the iPi actor so the rig will sometimes deform the spine in strange ways or have problems with the legs when I'm squatting or crouching. To work around this, I have to adjust the height of the actor during tracking to compensate for the mismatched knee joints position.

As much as I love working with version 2, I'm really looking forward to version 3. :)
