Re: selections doesn't select controller

It sounds like you need to reference the character in instead of opening/importing.
Make sure it has a namespace. Normally malcolm_v200

You probably want to remove all keyframes from ctlPlacement. That's the control that has the outfit visibility on it. You want to control the visibility with the picker buttons because more goes on behind the scenes to hide skin for the right outfit, but if you have keyframes on ctlPlacement, you mi...

Re: [Q] Recommended non destructive way to modify face/body shape?

You can use those purple controls (ctlDirect*) to reshape parts of the rig.
You can translate and scale other controls but yes you do run the risk of interfering with the rig's operation. There is no set way to do this but if you are our student we can meet with you in Model/Rig General Reviews.

Good question. The switch for the arms is on that controller but it makes it oriented to that control.
