This script makes it possible to orient a joint in any direction. Image shows original joint, the control object created for it, the control rotated and the final joint re-oriented to match the control. The script alters the chosen joint and it's immediate children joints to maintain their relationship.

Edit: I forgot to mention that the standard colors checkbox. When checked it uses standard colors for the guide with XYZ corresponding to colors Red Green Blue. Uncheck the box to use trueSpace colors of XYZ corresponding to Green Blue Red.


Edit: Bug found v1.01 fixed version

The joint control script had a bug which gave problems when a joint had multiple child bone/joints connected through limbs. I added the updated v1.01 script to the original post. I'll keep the original "no version number" version up just in case.

Here is a video demo(no sound). Hope it helps. One important thing: The joints cannot be oriented after skinning.
