smoothing with point cache modifier applied

Hello all, this is my first time posting here, I hope I'm in the right place.
I am currently trying to import an animation from maya into 3ds max. I have successfully created a geo cache in maya, then taken the mesh into 3ds max and applied a point cache modifier. My problem though, is that if I want to apply a turbosmooth modifier, it seems to stop the point cache modifier from working all together.

Does anyone know another way to smooth the mesh in 3ds max, similar to pushing the 3 button in maya? I have looked everywhere and cannot find and answer. Help would be appreciated.

add the turbosmooth modifier above the pointcache.

I guess you might have used the 'WSM Point Cache' which will always be on top.. further down the list of modifie is the normal Point Cache modifier that can be anywhere on the stack, as Lo said you can then place a turbosmooth above it.

Hi lo and Jonadb
Thanks for replying
The point cache I have on is the WSM one, sorry I forgot to mention it. When I try to move the turbosmooth modifier above it, it won't let me? Just clicking and dragging.

Oops, ignore my last post, I read the replies wrong. I put the normal point cache modifier on and it all worked nicely. Thanks!
