How do I duplicate bones/sprites?


Recommended Posts


I have a side profile of a character I want to animate. So I want an exact copy of the left arm and left leg to create the right set. So basically I want select some bones/sprites and duplicate them to make new elements. How is this done?

Also how do I group sprites? So lets say I have a knee, lower leg, upper leg and foot, and then want to group them together as the left leg?

Kind regards,

The Wyrm

If you select the topmost bone in the group, the upper arm bone for instance, then hit Z it will seelct all children bones and all the sprites attached to those bones.

Then hold CTRL and drag or rotate that bone and you will get a duplicate arm.

This thread has a shortcuts list that will be useful to you as well.


EDIT: Thread link was to old forum. Fixed it to point to the shortcuts topic in the updated forum.
