    Merging MDD files

    Is there a way to take a bunch of MDD files that were exported from, say 10 layers of an object, and combine them to apply back to 1 object with the layers collapsed? Thanks!

    Possibly...so to confirm, you have 10 objects with there own seperate MDD files, and you want one object with one MDD?

    I can't test this right now, but if it was me I would first merge the object pieces to one layer in modeler, then apply the MDD's via ClothFX and use the node match option. You should be able to stack them up then bake a new MDD to a final result.

    Let me know if it works!

    Actually, I think use coordinate mode in MDD is a better option...you should be able to ADD the vectors together.
