I posted previously about this problem, but I didn’t get a response. This is the same problem, but I noticed ithe Master Control bone location shows the correct orientation in Local Mode (based on the 3d manipulator widget).
I have tried to learn Local and Global space concepts, but I still don’t understand it.
Is there a way to make the Master Control bone location work in Global mode with the z axis going up and down and the Y axis going front to back?
