    Segmented model on separate layers question.

    How do you make a multiple mesh object (on separate layers) deform the same way as it would if it were on the same layer?

    Model built in Lightwave Modeler.
    Exporting with DTS exporter.

    Model is divided into parts.

    Head
    Body
    LeftEar
    LeftBicep
    LeftForearm
    LeftHand
    LeftThigh
    LeftShin
    LeftFoot
    RightEar
    RightBicep
    RightForearm
    RightHand
    RightThigh
    RightShin
    RightFoot

    Each part is a separate mesh. Each mesh is on on a separate layer for the purpose of taking advantage of Torque's built in animation features. Segments/Layers can be turned on or off for specific animations.

    When deforming the entire character in Layout, the joints separate as they cannot be welded when on separate layers.

    Is there a way in Layout to group the layers as one and make the meshes deform as if the joints were welded?

    It never fails.. Never mind figured it out.
    No sooner do we post all over the place asking questions.. then we figure it out..Well Dean did.
    It has to do with the naming of the animations sequences..
