Mirroring half top-hat accessory



I often mirror boom units from one side to the other and am frustrated by the way that half top-hat accessories mirror across - flipping the accessory vertically (image attached)


I currently use two versions of this accessory for SR and SL but am looking for a cleaner solution.


Can anyone offer an explanation or a solution to this?


Many thanks!

We don not allow mirrored fixtures because they don't exist in the real world.
If you mirror an asymmetrical object the resultant object exist int he real world.
Fixtures are automatically rotated rather then mirrored. In this case you need rotate the half hat.

It may not look different but it's critical that fixtures and accessories are not mirrored but rather rotated so they move properly in 3D and export properly to other applications.
