I'm trying to create and rig a simple human-ish body, I successfully created the body and the skeleton and parented it and it works, except that the bones on one hand control both. How would one go about making the rigging work where half the body is mirrored? Thanks

Put the Mirror modifier above the Armature and it should work fine:

  • $\begingroup$ yes it seems to fail for no reason, even though the Vertex Groups option is enabled in the Mirror modifier, I would personally apply the Mirror modifier, because anyway you'll probably have to bring some corrections $\endgroup$
