View Full Version : Mirroring Corrective Shapes

12 December 2010, 08:53 PM
I was wondering how everyone ends up mirroring corrective blendshapes in order to create the same result for both sides of the mesh as I am now tackling that for the assets I am creating for my demo reel.

I have the same problem. You could try to convert it to a cMuscle and then use the mirror function in there (be aware the rig might get slower). It is not a perfect solution to the problem, I know. Hope somebody have a better solution

If you're using Maya you can mirror any shape with a script called abSymMesh.
You'll only be able to mirror your blendShape correctly if your original mesh (the skinned one) is symmetrical.

For a mirrored corrective blendShape to work properly you'll need to make sure your skeleton is symmetrical and your skin weights are mirrored.

Good luck!

Disregard my answer.. was thinking about something else. spaced out sorry. You could also try comet scripts from comet cartoons. you need a compiled version most likely as he doesn't support anything after maya 8.5. But it's easy to find just google it. he have a lot of helpful scripts in the package as well
