I'm fairly new to Blender and am having some problems with skeletons/armatures, specifically aligning fingers on a hand so they are rotated facing the same way. I can't find an option to do it in edit mode and it's making my end product rotate weirdly, mainly the thumb.
So say, I have a bone like this:
If I wanna align a bone in 3DS Max I press Alt-A which brings up an option to "Align" anything to anything, I can select transformations, rotations and scale, copying from the object I select afterwards. Here's an example:
So if I select all the transformations, rotations and scales, it'll place it in the exact same location, rotated in the exact same way and scaled the exact same way, but maybe I just want to align their rotations so their axes are the same, I can do that easily by just ticking the appropriate boxes. This is great for aligning bones so that they're all on the same axis.
Here, I just ticked the rotations and you can see the rotation data has been copied to the bone:
So I wanna have fingers all aligned perfectly as they tend to be in real life, in Max I just do that method I just said and I can align the finger bones so that their axes are lined up.
In Blender I can't seem to do this, I just have to guess and hope that I've placed things so they're rotated the same. Is there some way to align the bones like I just showed in those images with Blender? Or am I stuck guessing and hoping things don't look too bad?
