thank you ! I knew about that tutorial, and I think all that stuff is still available in H9.5. I'm sure there are the same concepts that could be used in H9 too. I'll digg into it tomorrow. Cheers !

About the capturing part, I think the best way for control is manually paint weights over each muscle. At this moment I get lost with all those methods that are available for capturing. I'll post if I find something interesting. I have some concers about the flexing areas such as elbo or knee but I think it can be solved with blend shapes for the muscles, and some geometry underneath the skin to inflate the mesh like a bone under skin does (such as a bulge node).

so in conclusion the number of handles that the muslce sop comes with cannot be changed..it is fixed to 5...but you can add as many nulls as you want for reshaping the curvature of the muscle. The default 5 handles are for inflating the areas you want.
