I seem to be having issues with flipping and duplicating some keyframes. I've tried using Ctrl + C, Shift + Ctrl + V and duplicating keyframes in the Dope Sheet, but I can't get copied frames to work properly. I've already keyframed the motion of the left and right legs/feet, but whenever I try and duplicate what I've done for later in the timeline, such as the left leg, it gets stretched out of proportion. :-\ I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong or what I should be adjusting instead.

Any suggestions?

At least make sure that your armature is symmetrized. As you can see it is not. So in Edit mode select the left (or right) part and Symmetrize. Also, you'll have to correct the Pole Angle of some bones like the forearm, fingers...

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the suggestion. I'll play around with it after both sides are now symmetrical. I can't say changing the pole angle has helped though. Putting the right one to 90 degrees just twists the arm around the wrong way. $\endgroup$ – DustyShinigami Mar 11 at 16:06
  • $\begingroup$ Yes it depends on which side you've symmetrized, find the right pole angle ;) $\endgroup$ – moonboots Mar 11 at 16:12
  • $\begingroup$ Okay, I think I've got it. I take it it's just a case of repositioning the arm/hand for it to untwirl and be in the correct direction...? $\endgroup$ – DustyShinigami Mar 11 at 16:18
  • $\begingroup$ once you've symmetrized you often (always?) need to twist some of your IK bones so that they are correctly oriented, but it was not your problem, I think it has too see with a bad symmetry, I'm not sure though, you need to test. $\endgroup$ – moonboots Mar 11 at 16:22
  • $\begingroup$ The finger positions still get messed up if I copy the right hand's armature position over to the left. $\endgroup$ – DustyShinigami Mar 11 at 16:24
