I'm using the metarig for my model, but the legs bend uncomfortably around the crotch, knees, and foot heels. Is there a way to make them bend more natural? Preferably that doesn't involve drivers or shape keys because I don't know how to use them nor I'm good with.enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ If you mean by "metarig" Rigify's metarig then please note that this is not meant to be used for animation. You must generate the animation rig from the metarig. $\endgroup$

If you are used to rig, you can try to create a "double joints" system to have better deformation for your character's legs.

Here is a good source for creating this kind of behavior :


But I would still recommend to use shape keys and drivers. They can help a lot doing specific deformation at very small scales that can correct this kind of behavior automatically.

Here is another useful link on how to do this :


Hope this help
