Hi all, Im trying to get APS working on an object that is deformed with MDD, I have played with all the subdivision orders and can get the MDD to work but not the displacement or the other way around.

Anyone help with this????

If I understand correctly, you want to use Normal Displacement on an mdd-deformed object, right?

Pooby has posted a solution here: link (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showpost.php?p=650940&postcount=3).

It's best not to use Lightwave's own Normal displacement plugin (seems buggy). The alternative Normal Displacement plugin can be downloaded here: link (http://lynx.aspect-design.de/plugins/normal_displace_info.htm).

(In case you didn't know, the MDD Pointer node is part of Dpont's nodes (http://pagesperso-orange.fr/dpont/plugins/nodes/nodes/Download.htm).)
