Modifying muscle bulge and jiggle using Muscle parameters

So now that we have learned how to add in muscles to a skeleton, let's go ahead and show you how to modify their behavior and edit those muscles. I have saved out a scene here called Arm_02.mb and it's pretty much like the last one that we have been working with and it's essentially that arm that bends. Then I also have a little bit of vertical motion here, because I am going to show you how to work with muscle jiggle. So I am going to go into my Outliner here and let's just go ahead and go here to Group Muscles. Let's go into Wireframe Mode here. If I want I could actually just select that muscle here. So Muscle Bicep is what we want to have selected.

Remember how we had Build, Cross Section and Finalize, but we also have a fourth tab here called Muscle Parameters. What this does is it allows us to change the way the muscle behaves. So...
