One thing I'd like to see is the ability to rotate as you are adding and stretching a  bone. ( of course I havent played with bones in quite a while.... maybe already possible? hmmmm

Do you mean rorating the bone you just created? That's already possible: use this button in figure mode.

I know what you mean....I don;t think it's possible yet.

What he means is to drag the end of the bone, creating it, rotating it, and scaling it all at the same time.

Something I just stumbled over.
I detatched quite a view faces for some further editing and was left with the original mesh having a lot of "empty" lines.

Deleting those lines is not really that much of a hastle but since they are shown in different colours I suspect that the data is somewhere in the program already to do something like "select all edges with 0 faces connected".

This can be easily done using ASL. I've already written a plugin that does something like this, check it out (12th post in that topic):
http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=1105.msg8892#msg8892

The plugin will delete every "empty" line and also every point that doesn't have any faces attached. If you only want to select those lines instead of deleting them, let me know and I'll edit the code for you.

Great idea.

May I suggest you group the object you want locked? Then you won't be able to move the verticies etc unless you use the arrow keys.

Second suggestion is good also. You can do this in morphenvy.

You make yourt first object.
Make a morph target with this object.
Copy this object while it is in morph state.
Paste it into  a new object and you will find you have pasted your morphed object  (ie target), not the original.

Keep going for as many morphs as you like.

Then use morphenvy to combine them into one object with a lot of different morph targets.

Remember morphenvy is dos based ? so use simple names

Hi neirao

Pity you have trouble with morphenvy!

The only problems I ever had was when I named objects files whatever with too long names or incorrectly.


It's a good program

The lock/unlock idea sounds great. I would also include with this colored wireframes to indicate the state and as seporation of the objects.

As for the second suggestion. you should not need more than one of a specific morph.
To close the mouth, just reverse your effects/

Open mouth - close mouth.
Open mouth - open wider - cloaw mouth

First note that close mouth IS your original object. thus an actual "close mouth" is not really needed.

if you have "open wider" set as it's own morph from original object, then you can easily reverse Open mouth at the same time "Open wider".

If you have not done so, check out my tutorial on morphs. As simple as it is, it will give you a very good understanding on how morphs work and can be applied
