Default Blendshapes trouble

Hello there,

I am working on an avatar, I have duplicated it and make some transformations in the face, that is fine, the fisrt time it works correct, the second time that I do the same (duplicate the original, make the transformations) I try to create a blendshape and then I get the error " No deformable objects selected" .... and it happens always in the second try.

What can I do in order to avoid this error ?? the problem is that I dont get it when I create a blendshape the first time, it only happens when I use the second copy of the avatar.

The best way to create blendshapes, is to first make all the expressions and /or phonemes (e, o,m etc.) then select all of them and as last your original head(blendtarget).
and then hit the create blendshape button

good luck
