Morpher problem
show user profile  LOL500
So I have a problem with the morphers.
Morpher 1 is eye close morpher while morpher 2 is mouth open morpher.
When both morhpers are off, my model`s eyes are open with mouth closed.
If only either of the morphers are turned on, they work fine.
But if I try to turn both on, problems occur.

M2 set to 100, mouth open, but then when I went on to set M1 to 100, mouth close while eyes close.

So how do I fix this?

(I remember a reading somewhere about linking 2 morphers or things like that, so perhaps it needs to be delinked or something like that?)

And while you`re here, could you also answer some of my questions:

What does the point-point modifier does?

Hm, could you post screenshots of your three objects (base object, target objects for morphers 1 and 2?

actually no. Because the whole thing was actually a .pmd model imported with a maxscript. so no target objects, just the base.

How about you list some common factors that may be contributing to this? Them I`ll go check.

this happens when max registers the verts that dont actually move with the morph as moved so they count towards achieving the morph target. Best way to deal with this is to construct a morph hierarchy like this

object 1 - base mesh

object 2 - display mesh
this is a reference of object 1 with morph + whatever modifiers above the reference breaker

object 3...n - morph targets
these are also references of object 1 and have editable poly/mesh modifier above the reference breaker where you make the morph changes

this will ensure that only the verts you actually want are counted towards morph and will also tolerate any kind of base mesh changes without breaking the morph. personally i like to put the base mesh and its morph targets in a separate layer and hide it while im not modifying them.

You can salvage your current morph targets with symmetry tool's vert position copy/paste function in that ribbon thingy by copying the vert positions post morph into the newly created references epoly modifiers

I was wondering if I`ve created 2 morpher modifiers, can I merge them together?
