Hi guys! Does anyone know what is meant by this cryptic line from the documentation of the bone object?

In addition, a chain created using the Bones Operation will produce a better behaved bone chain.

Does the Bones Operation do some special voodoo to the bone chain to make it “behave” better?

the Bones tool will make sure that all the bones are nicely aligned (important for IK) and the regions are properly scaled…and nice colors

Will that interfere with an FK rig being driven by CHOPs rotations from a mocap rig?
I am having problems copying mocap from a source rig to a target rig and I can't figure out why the alignment fails.

it shouldn't have anything to do with transferring mocap - maybe check the rotation order

and/or post a small example file?
