Now that we have defined our new shape, it's important to fix the bone rolls. Bone rolls values are extremely important to let the rig work correctly during animation, avoiding tedious and sometimes almost impossible fixes. These values will determine which is the natural bending direction of each single bone in this rig. This is the reason for that long explanation about joint orientations, bvh standard and the in depth discussion of how to setup bone roll: it is what we have to comply with now.
