I have setup R and L labled bones and am trying to copy all of the weight gradients of the bones labled L, to the similar named bones labled R on the symmetrical model. The model is resting in the center of the scene, and all R labled bones have been exactly mirrored across the x-axis as well as being rotated normally to "view axis".

Thanks for the help!

You'll need empty vertex groups for the right side, which you can automatically create when you parent the model to the armature. Also make sure you are using a mirror modifier and it has the vertex groups option turned on.

  • $\begingroup$ Clear, like delete all of the R vertex groups? (I'm almost a complete beginner so sorry if I sound dumb with this program.) $\endgroup$ – Black Mageic Jan 2 '18 at 14:27
  • $\begingroup$ No no, you need the R vertex groups - they should exist, but do not contain any manual weights unless you want them to influence the left side, too. $\endgroup$ – HENDRIX Jan 3 '18 at 9:53
  • $\begingroup$ I ran into this problem recently, too. A simple fix was to parent the mesh to the armature again, and doing so with "Empty Groups". This will create properly named .L/.R vertex groups that will hold the weights that the mirror modifier will put in them. $\endgroup$ – Ben Jan 20 at 22:55
