How Morph in an Animation

In the last article I wrote about making shape keys. Now what are you going to do with those!? The entire reason you made those was to animate them!

Skill: Mediam

Here are the steps:

1. Start up Blender.
2. Open your .blend file that has Shape Keys in it.
3. Open an Ipo Curve Editor if you don't know how to, look at my article on animation.

4. On the Ipo Type drop down menu select Shape.
5. Open the Edit Tools Panel.
6. Open the Shapes tab.
7. Select the Shape Key key you want to animate.
8. Drag the slider to the correct value for the Shape Key in frame one.

9. Advance a few frames.
10. Drag the slider to the correct value.
11. Repeat step 9-10 to the end of the animation.

Now you can animate shape keys!!! Try using shape keys in your next animation.
