Yeah, I’ve been annoyed with this too. Wondering if there’s any way to use Fenric’s ERC control so that if you set the root of the armature to visible=0 it could apply the same to all the descendants - though if I remember correctly, this might only affect a direct line of children (tail 1, tail 2, tail 3 . . .) so wouldn’t help with siblings (think you’d need a sepearate one for each finger and toe for instance. Just thinking out loud here. I’ve often wanted to get rid of that armature myself.
It does get in the way. I found the ‘hide unslected objects’, the first little icon at the right top will hide the bones but if your figure is dress etc that will go away too. It is the only way I found to do any dail morphing on the figure.
This is my favourite peeve with Carrara armature - that and bones not holding selection. I use every opportunity to ask Daz to change the bones to solids, as they are in every other app I’ve used, including their very own Studio. According to Fenric, this is merely a display issue and it is easier to programme the bones to be solid than dotted lines.
I feel another feature request coming on - would you guys support it?
