Im trying to animate metaballs thru endomorphs like it is indicated in LW7 manual. But when I try to slide the MorphMixer bars absolutelly nothing happens. What should I do? MorphMixer is still working whith non metaballs points...

Thanks for your attention.

Ahhh I know the answer to that question. Check the first page of my Tuts (see link below) for more tips like this.

If you intend to animate Meta-Primitives using something like Morph Mixer, be sure you set 'Subdivision Order' to 'After Motion' in the Object Properties Panel, or it won't happen.

Hey Riki.

Thanks very much. Amazing tuts man.

Ive also founded another way to do it thru hypervoxels metaballs instead of metaballs from modeler. A lot of people have complains about the quality of modeler metaballs render quallity, hypervoxels is smoother and quicker. But its very good to master the both ways.

Thanks again. :D
