(ie, why don't all vertices in the first model map onto the vertices on the second model?) you could, however, have some kind of inbetween point where you'd mucked up the shoe and chair and just switch the two models however, this will lead to a lot of bad things and it would take forever to set up just make the chair and shoe with the same vertices and same connections. if vertex A connects to vertex B in one model it has to do the same for the other as far as i know, for blend shapes to work, each vertex in one model has to map onto another vertex in the other model and more than one vertex in one model can't map onto the same vertex in the other model __________________ that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K" Computer skills I should have: Objective C, C#, Java, MEL.

Then i'll let you know the outcome. Cheers, fm Cattel
