    That actually looks a lot like Magpie and that isn't really for what I was going for. It wouldn't be for lipsyncing but rather changing the image in the sequence using just a null or slider without...

    I always thought that the old method was to have a glass surface and then a copy of the mesh with the normals flipped and slightly shrunk which would end up being the 'air' surface. That's how I use...

    Yes, I know the truth of being an old fart as I have been at the Lightwave game for the last 20 years.

    Cool Tool! Tape Tool - MESHmachine
