THE PROBLEM

 

Maya’s mirror tools are difficult to find and missing functionality.

 
 

THE SOLUTION

 

Zoo Mirror Geo adds all mirroring tools in one handy location. We also add…

Zoo Mirror Polygon: An automated workflow for mirroring using Mesh > Mirror

Mirror Obj Instance: Automates the creation and management of instance mirroring.

We also fix mesh-mirroring in object space which fails if the object has had it’s transforms frozen.
