Hello everybody, I am making my first steps with the Malcolm Rig and I have a little problem.
I am working with elbow pin on Malcolm, my question is can i disable auto stretch when elbow pin is on, even if the auto stretch is off in the IK controller I always find myself stretching the arm and not knowing what is the original length of the arm.

by the way a great thanks to animschool for that amazing rig.

Hello! If I understand you correctly, you can't do it. The elbow pin works by stretching the arm.

You just have to eyeball the lengths. Compensate by moving the shoulders, etc as you would in real life. Turn on and off the elbow pin to get a sense for how stretched it is. Then you'll know how much compensation to do.
