Hi, I'm animating a moth flying, and I've created a somewhat complicated series of keyframes, with the wing rotating on both the x and y axis. I was wondering if there was an easy way to flip these onto the other wing so they match up perfectly. Thanks!

There may be an expression to do this, but you can also duplicate your wing layer, link that to a null, and unlink your null size controls. Make the x value only negative and you should get a mirrored wing.
