View Full Version : blendshape part of object

04-10-2004, 11:38 PM
i modeled out a character (all one onject) and now im doing blendshapes for the face. is there a way to duplicate only some of the object so i dont have the body part of the blenshape. I know i could just duplicate the whole thing and not toch the body vertices, but i want ot keep it clean. Is this possible or do i have to seperate them?

when l model a charater in one piece .......................what l do is only cut the face as exemple for a blenshapes l do all my blendshapes on that face cuted and after l use a wrap to drive my complete Chaarcter and extract out all the shape on that one ........
hope u understand

You could make blend shapes on the selected areas of cvs- just like binding skin to bones.

You can seperate the head from the body and then duplicate the head.
Then re-combine the original head with the body by 1st selecting the head(important) and then the body and combining them. (Make sure history not turned off.)

Then merge verts and do a poly smooth.

Then select the duplicated head and then the character and create a blend shape but make sure "check topology is unchecked"
