Steven Roselle takes a look at some of the animation editing features and tools found in the Maya Bonus Tools including an older look at the Time Warp Animation tool, the Maya Reverse Animation Bonus Tool, and the Mirror Animation Tool.

for my first post of 2013 I’d like to take a look back and revisit a few of the animation related BonusTools that I’ve written over the years

The Mirror Animation Tool found in the Maya Bonus tools can mirror animation (as the name suggests) for a single object or a series of animated objects in Maya, by simply choosing a mirror axis and applying the mirror tool. The Maya Reverse Animation tool works more or less in the same manner by allowing you to reverse animation around a pivot, or a specific time.
