You're talking about mirroring the left half of the anus with the right? Skin mirroring doesn't work?

[edit] or you're talking about skinning one anus to another duplicate anus? If so, then skin wrap is your friend.

I've skinned a mesh to a single bone, but now I've realized I need more control. So I've added more bones to the skin modifier. The bones that I've added are the same as the existing bone in scale,rotation,position, identical.

Now I simply want to select a group of verts and just transfer their weights to the other bone which is identical.

Unfortunately, I find myself having to copy and paste the weight from one bone to another one by one. Fortunately there aren't too many verts so this only takes a few minutes.

I'm just surprised you can't copy weights from verts from one bone to another.

(Herfs1, sorry bout that lol)

I guess it's my own fault for not knowing how many bones to add in the beginning.

Digs mentioned scripting, but that would take a few days of learning that I can't afford right now.
