  • $\begingroup$ You set it on the metarig In pose mode select the base of the three finger bones Under the Bone properties Tab, Rigify Type. The drop down next to Rig Type has a whole bunch of rig type options. The one you are looking for here is the limbs.super_Finger. When you generate the rig you'll see the controls you want. on the bones you set to that rig Type. $\endgroup$

Here's an illustration enter image description here You set the rig type on the metarig before generating the control rig.

  • Select the Metarig and set it to pose mode.
  • select the base of the three finger bones.
  • open the Bone properties Tab
  • Expand the Rigify Type section
  • In the drop down next to Rig Type you'll see a bunch of rig type options. The one you are looking for here is the limbs.super_Finger.
  • You can then select the bases of all the other fingers and Right click on the Rigify Type and select Copy to selected so you don't have to manually set them all one by one.
  • Once that's done, you generate the rig and you'll see the controls you want on the bones you set to that rig Type.
