Mirror

The main purpose of this tool is to transfer information from one side of a character to the other side. This can be entire joint hierarchies, including weights and IK tags, or it can be just a single weight that you've edited on one side that you now want transferred to the other side. In short, this tool means you'll probably never have to do the same work twice, once for each side of your character.

Note
The following description for using this tool focuses on using it to mirror joint objects. This is because the tool has been developed especially with character animation in mind. However, this tool is also ideal for tasks such as mirroring the positions of objects or transferring their tags to their counterparts on the other side.
