the blendshapes look great

how do you make the blendshapes? are they on the poly mesh, or directly in subd (if the head is subd at all) ?

Blendshapes are pretty easy to do the only time consuming part it shaping the model to get the look you want....
All you do is make a copy of you original geometry adn model it to the way you want. Then select the copy then shift select the orignial go Deform> create blendshapes. Then Sliders come up.


I do all my shapeing in sub-d then covert back to poly add a smooth for the blends...

ok thanks - that is what i wanted to know. i am right now looking for ideas to make a very very low poly character for a animation. and my first thought was to finish the animation with the low poly version - so that i have less stress with rigging it. and when the animation is ready - to just convert the character with a proxy to subd. the shaping in subd and then converting back to poly for the blendshapes sounds very good to me. so much to learn yet
