I tried duplicating one side of my armature and mirroring it to the other side with Shift+D, S, X, -1. It works except that in pose mode, the arm and the leg are not symmetrical to the other side. Is there a way to fix it other than manually replacing them? I really want to keep it clean. The rest position is ok though.

    $\begingroup$ to mirror an armature, make sure that the bones you want to mirror have the R or L suffixe, for example lowerleg.L or lowerleg_L, then in Edit mode go in the header menu > Armature > Symmetrize, and you'll have your armature correctly symmetrized, and the bones will automatically be called lowerleg.R or lowerleg_R $\endgroup$ – moonboots Sep 8 '20 at 4:36
  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots when I select my bones and click symmetrize, it doesn't do anything, and all their names en by .R (Bras.R for example) $\endgroup$ – Samuel Fyckes Sep 8 '20 at 10:37

I'm new to blender but I think you can remove on a object like one hand and the select the arm go to modifiers and add a new modifier called "Mirror"maybe it'll work for you. Through mirroring any change you can make in one hand is also applicable to second hand... Thank you!

  • $\begingroup$ you mean mirroring like when you mirror the mesh when you make it ? If so, i can't find where i can add that to my armature $\endgroup$ – Samuel Fyckes Sep 8 '20 at 10:35
