Posing Hand Parts

To access the Hands Tab from any of the other tabs, simply click the green dot that appears in one of the corners, near the small hand silhouette. The Hands Tab, shown below, appears. Dots appear for each finger section as well as for the hand.

When you pose a hand, you’ll probably find it much easier to see what’s happening when you bring the hand and fingers into closer view. For example, if you are trying to position fingers around an object that the hand holds, use the Scene Tab to select all hand parts (hand and all fingers). Then click the Camera Frame control icon in the Viewport/Cameras toolbar to frame all of the selected hand parts into the view of the camera as shown below. If you are using multiple views, you’ll need to click the Camera Frame control in each view to focus on the selected parts.
