right now, i have successfully created tank treads, path cloned them in a tank tread pattern and have made a morph map. The treads rotate nicely using the EndoMorph slider but what i would like to be able to do is create an expression in the graph editor that would rotate the treads when the whole thing has moved so many meters. ive tangled with a few tutorials on the subject of expressions with no luck. any advice concerning expressions, or just tips would be greatly appreciated.

and also, im using Lightwave 7.5c
