[SOLVED] Unable to Mirror Skin

PostPosted by Barliesque » Sun Mar 19, 2017 11:09 pm

I've worked along side the tutorial videos, creating a half-skeleton, and binding the skin. Now I select all the joints to be mirrored, but the "Mirror Skin" button remains disabled. What could be wrong?

Hi Barliesque,

Did you already bind the skin before trying to mirror ? Because you have to bind the skin first, otherwise the "Mirror Skin" button will remain disabled.
In case you already bind, does your joint names have the correct side label convention ? Please take a look at the manual https://nukeygara.atlassian.net/wiki/display/AUG/Skinning+Window

Thanks

Hi
does your joint names have the correct side label convention ?

Apropos , It would to be nice to expand the labeling suffix for us . ;)
e.g. I use always "r" and "l"
For Akeytsu I must extra renamed my bones.

Hi Fairy,

"r" and "l" work (-> "_r","r_" f.i).
What do you mean exactly ?

Thanks

That was it. I'd mistakenly thought that hyphen could be used in place of underscore. My model is a robot, and so has lots of separate meshes, all using the same type of naming convention. Because Akeytsu places the bones and the meshes into the same hierarchy, I couldn't call both e.g. "UpperArm_L" -- so now, where there are conflicts I'm just using double-underscore to avoid the problem.

Thanks for your help.
