I am doing the Manga Girl tutorial by Karan Shah (http://cg.tutsplus.com/tutorials/ble…blender-day-1/)
I’m a newby but this was written for Blender 2.46 and I’m using 2.62. It says in a day but I’ve been going at if for 2 hours and just now trying to mirror the cylinder for the left calf.
Except I can’t make it work. The ‘origin’ at which the cylinder was created is still in the right place (about the belly button) but Mirror on x-axis in edit mode isn’t mirroring anything. I can move the cylinder but it’s not actually mirroring it when I finish.
I thought this was supposed to mirror on the x-axis (global) according to the origin.
When I do Mirror X Global in ‘Object’ mode the cylinder moves from the left leg to the right leg but when I try in in ‘Edit’ mode nothing happens.
I’m on the first part: 1. The Body
Please see this thread:
OK, thanks everyone.
My problem was there are in 2.6.2 a ‘mirror’ listed under the ‘Object’ menu and a ‘mirror’ listed under the ‘Edit’ meny and also on the far right at the top:
If I select the ‘Cylinder’ and then select the Wrench on the Icon menu underneath that it brings up ‘Add Modifier’ from with I can select ‘Mirror’ also.
The last one is the one I want (and looks to be the same thing the tutorial is showing).
