Morphs on a figure
« on: March 24, 2010, 04:15:50 am »

May be a dumb question but can you have a morph on a figure, that has a sequence???

yes you can. you create your morphs in object mode and your use them in scene mode. They won't appear in sequence mode.

Ah, sorry I had dumb moment (search why didnt I bother to use search!?!?!?!?), So it is just a small bug that makes it so you can see it in the scene at first, untill you do certain things to make it show it (I hope that made sense). Anyways Thanks  ;D

Hi there cooldude234,
  you add morph targets to your objects, then add the objects to your figure.
 In scene mode, it is the actual objects, attached to your figures bones, which have the morphs.
The "certain things to make it show" are 'animating your morph targets'.

 These vids might help:

 Adding morph targets to object



 Animating morph targets. (making them show in scene mode)

&feature=related

 The only thing missing there is adding the objects to your figure.  (although the end of the 2nd vid  does show briefly and simply, without 'skinning'. )
   Having a sequence added to the same figure is fine.  Morphs will still work. ;)
 Hope that helps.  :)

But sometimes when you add morph targets to your objects, then add the objects to your figure the morphs sometimes dont appear in scene mode.
When that happens I just switch to object mode then go back to scene mode and walla!The morphs are there.

Josmic8or - Thats what I was reffering to when I said "certain things to make it show"

My issue was, I just couldnt see them, so the doing the"certain things to make it show", well made it show and fixed issue
