Morph Targets / Blend Shapes Action[DONE]
« on: December 06, 2013, 09:20:39 PM »
I've just started trying out Unity 4.3 and have found that it supports morph targets now. I can see the properties on the Skinned Mesh Renderer but I can't find a way to set it using the Set Property action. It has a lot of properties it can change but "BlendShapes" isn't one.

Could either the Get/Set Property actions be updated or could we have a new action to perform this.

Hi,

 this will need custom actions. Could you provide a scene with skinned mesh to me with two or more morph targets ( pm me), and will create this action.

bye,

Here's an fbx, just drop it in the scene. The default import options should set it up with the Skinned Mesh Renderer, which will show the three "BlendShapes" I've exported with it. The Action just needs to give us control of those floats I would think.

Could open up all kinds of possibilities, characters that get fatter/thinner, face phoneme animation, etc. I'm looking forward to trying some things out.

Now it's my turn to be about to go to bed. I just noticed you'd done this and had to quickly try it out. Works perfectly. I'll get stuck into more tests tomorrow.

Big thanks :)
