Very rich in render, concept and facial animation.

I see that others have asked about how the point helpers are rigged. I want to know the same. Any references to this type of facial animation?

I know about a year ago there was a thread here at CGtalk in the 3ds Max section that covered some of the basics. I can't find it now. Anyone knows where there is info on this facial animation method, please speak up.

GREAT WORK. (this is flattery, now please give some help on how to get started)
