I posted this under a different title, referring to a tutorial on the blender.org site, and it seems to me I must be missing something simple. I see this forum is active, but I’ve had no responses and figure there’s a good chance that’s because I refer to the tutorial and maybe many people don’t use it.
Here’s the problem: I have a figure with two arms and two legs, one armature in each arm, two in each leg (upper and lower). I set it up for frame 1, then do frame 11. When I get to frame 21, I go back to frame 1, copy the current pose, then go to frame 21 and try to “paste flipped pose.” The arm poses are flipped, but the leg poses are not. The arm poses rotate on the Z axis and the leg poses rotate on the Y axis. I don’t know if that could be a problem.
When I paste the flipped pose, the left and right arms are flipped (the pose on the left becomes the pose on the right, and vice versa). The left and right legs, though, do not flip at all. If I paste the original pose, the legs are the same as if I post a flipped pose.
Am I doing something wrong here, like forgetting a setting or something? I’m using Blender 2.42a on Linux (Ubuntu Edgy Eft).
Thanks for any help – I really can’t do any more on this and on learning Blender until I can get past this block.
