Under the Object properties for joints, there is a bone length field, with styles such as "From Parent" and
"To Child". I understand "From Parent", but how is "To Child" calculated, since a joint can have multiple descendants?
I'm asking because the JointRestState struct has a m_Len variable for the "bone rest length".
However, this value doesn't appear to be "From Parent", but "To Child".
I don't suppose there is a way to tell the C++ or Melange SDK to use "From Parent" values instead of "To Child" ?
Because "To Child" is very ambiguous to me.
Or is there some function to get the C++/Melange SDK to calculate the value for me?

"To Child" uses the distance to the first child of the joint for the bone length.
