I want to create an animation with a rigged model, but it appears as if the bones are all rotated 90 degrees:

Rig with bones rotated 90 degrees

This is best visible in the tail; I would expect the tip of the left bones meet the head of the right bones, as is the case with most rigs I've seen. For example:

"Regular" rig

While the rig does work correctly and is posable, I'd like to rotate the bones back so they look like you'd expect. Of course this can be done manually, but is there a way to do them all in one go?


This problem can be solved by tweaking the primary and secondary bone axis in the armature tab when importing. (In case of a .fbx)
