Now delete the Morpher modifier on your Right Targets and replace it with a Skin Wrap Modifier (Fig.07) and load the Mirrored Targets as a target (Fig.08).

Now, on your Mirrored Targets, put L_eyebrow_UP in 100, and watch as the geometry of the Right Targets follows. Clone the Right Targets geometry and convert it to an Editable Poly (Fig.09). And just keep things organized, rename the Right _Target01 to R_eyebrow_UP and place it on the opposite side of the main Head.

Do this for every Morphtarget you made.

Now, you can delete the Right Targets and mirrored Targets from the scene as they're not need anymore (Fig.10).

And that's it! Now you can load all your right targets into the main head morpher.  And you've just mirrored all your Morphtargets. Feel proud (Fig.11)!

I feel you gain more learning this rather than relying on scripts, since you can always translate this method between programs. If questions concerning this tutorial rise up you can contact me at: mossicomicon@gmail.com

I have been using this method for a couple of years and always meant to write it up as a tutorial. You have written it quite well and the explanation is clear, good job.
