That's better than I imagined. I've used a number of those options in the numeric panel including weights for dragging, especially in landscape creation to create a landscape map that is true to a storyboard. This tip takes it to a whole new level. I can see multiple uses for it already. Thanks.

Yep, I like using the weight map method for creating quick landscapes, etc. Now if you use the face in Protons demo and used endomorphs, you can make a very quick animation. Imagine a face on a wall in a picture frame and as the character passes by it the face pops out at the character saying "boo".

It should also be noted that using negative weight values will reverse the effect of the action. This can produce evern more intesting functions.

Nice video as alwasy proton.
