Mirror, Mirror

The problem is one which crops up quite frequently. You have an object, or perhaps a whole hierarchy of objects, and you would like to reflect them over an axis. In other words, to make the object(s) mirror images of themselves. You might also want to duplicate the object before mirroring it.

However, you can't always do this easily. Cinema has the Symmetry object and the Mirror tool - but there are disadvantages with both. Mirroring a series of objects manually is always possible but can be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating. Mirror, Mirror is intended as a one-click solution to this problem.

Rather than going into detail here about what the plugin can do, I strongly encourage you to read the plugin help file (in PDF format) which also explains some of the limitations in the plugin.


Mirror, Mirror is compatible with the following versions of Cinema 4D:
