Help mirroring vertex weights on a single bone?

Hello,

I'm rigging this character in 3ds max and the middle brow bone controls both sides of the face. I've rigged the left half and I want to mirror those assignments to the right half. (using the same bone). Is there a way to do this without manually transferring the weights?



example:

Select the verts you've weighted already, enter 'Mirror Mode' and hit ''Mirror Paste' that should do it.

Cheers
