I have a rig that is not a typical L/R biped. It has N/S/E/W limbs. The limbs have fairly complex rigging that I'd like to avoid having to individually animate. Without the mirror functionality, is there a way to copy action keyframes from "east bone X" to the corresponding north, south and west bones?

Try this. Change your Timeline at the bottom of your screen to Dope Sheet. Next, select the keyframes from your east bone X and duplicate them to your other limbs. You should see under the Dope Sheet Summary each of your limbs. This has worked for me when I need to copy my animations to other limbs. Hope this works for you!

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the suggestion. I have the selection of the east bones in Dope Sheet done. I have the north bones selected, but do not see the keyframes pasting to them, when executing Paste Keyframes (Ctrl V.) How do you paste keyframes? $\endgroup$ – paul Oct 16 '17 at 14:10
  • $\begingroup$ If your rig is one object, you should be able to duplicate (Shift D) the bones to the other limbs in the Dope Sheet. If the limbs are separate objects, try joining them as one (Ctrl J) and then duplicate the bones. $\endgroup$ – Mary Oct 22 '17 at 3:21
