I seem to be having an issue with mirroring weights (again). I have X Mirror enabled, painted one side, gone to Data > Vertex Groups > and selected Copy Vertex Group and even Mirror Vertex Group, and even if I rename the copy so it's something.L and something.R, it keeps putting the mirrored version over the top of the one that's already there. What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this?

I don't know if it helps to remind that X-mirror works along the x-axis. Your character would need to face negative Y to take advantage of that. And Object>Apply>Rotation also.

  • $\begingroup$ Okay, something still isn't right. I wish I could upload a save... :-\ From what it looks like to me, the model is facing negative Y anyway, but it still isn't working. If I adjust the rotation on the Y axis however, the character rotates around clockwise/anti-clockwise from the centre of the grid. Rotating on the Z axis spins him around so he either faces towards the screen or has his back to it. $\endgroup$ – DustyShinigami May 8 '19 at 12:03
