titleCyclemaker and general mirroring requirements

It is important to remind that our mirroring features (including the cyclemaker cycle maker features) works if:

  • The skeleton is correctly named/labelled (about it, we suggest to consult consulting the Mirror Skin & Joints parts of the Skin Atelier page)
  • The Bind Pose/Ref Pose of the skeleton was was obtained via our rig mirroring process

It means that if you bring your skeleton from another 3D package, it may be possible that you encounter some issues due to different axis orientation. In order to fix them, please delete a side of the skeleton and let Akeytsu mirror it.
