When importing a dotxsi file from Lightwave, is there a special scale that needs to be used? The reason I ask is this...the shape manager sees all of the shapes just fine. When animating with the shape manager, the object scales up and down when dragging the sliders.

Something I need to know about shape importing? Thanks in advance for any info.

A quick thougt, are the centres of all shapes at the same location?? I know that moving the centre away screws up you shape animation.

The shapes are endomorphs that came in with the object import. I think it's something I must be doing wrong...

I made a sphere with a few shapekeys, and when weighting the shapes, the sphere sizes up and down when 2 shapes transition over each other. I had to hit the normalize button in the options panel, but when that is clicked, there is no gradual transition(it either off or on).
