View Full Version : expression editor question

02 February 2004, 04:25 PM
I started reading stop starring book today and am at the first tutorial. In the expression editor it says to type mouthShapes.wideNarrow = mouthControl.translateX but when I do that I get a error that says Attribute not found or missing '$': mouthControl.translateX. What can I do to fix this?

the only thing i can say is make sure that your spelling in the expression matches the spelling of the name of the locator you are supposed to use as the control object, and makes sure that the blendshape node's name that you are referring to in the expression matches perfectly the actual blendshape node's name.
