Animated butterfly wings, symmetry tag = error in UV map

Hello,

Topic name pretty much says it all - I've got an animated butterfly with the wings under a symmetry tag. It's all quite neat but the trouble is that, the symmetry tag doesn't play nicely with the mirrored wings UV .

How do I keep it neat, so I can simply animate one wing and have the other oppose its movements while keeping the UV coordinates OK?


Cheers.

you can try selecting the texture tag in the Object Manager and from the Tag menu there choose Generate UVW Coordinates
