    Sharp Points with Elbow and Knee Animations


      I'm researching and experimenting an efficient way to animate a character in After Effects with bendable knees and elbows, but all the common practices use rounded elbows and knees when i need them to be sharp points. The two methods I've research are the IK and puppet tools but all methods don't keep a sharp point constantly without leaving a gap or a rounded joint to close gap. The only tedious solution I've been able to come up with is to create the joint movement with either of the two methods above and then key frame a pointed knee and elbow rectangular sleeve with an added two points to bend and create sharp points. Any other solutions that are less tedious?
