the autorig skeleton is missing finger joints.
I ran tests in the Autorig Reshape tool and in Smartbody.
Tests have been made with my own supplied meshes and also with SmartBody's supplied meshes chrbrad, ChrMaarten, ChrRachel to verify.
while the template skeleton seems to have a complete set of finger joints (3 per finger) the rig ends up in 1 joint / finger.
How to achieve complete rig?

The method is based on a fitting achieved from a set of example meshes. Since the example meshes don't have extended fingers, it can't 'copy' that rig to the mesh. 

We'd have to extend the method to include a separate set of example hands that were already rigged, or use an alternative method (perhaps some heuristic fitting) for that part of the body.
