Morpher Modifier

The Morpher Modifier

The Morpher Modifier is a helpful technique in 3ds Max that allows for easy Facial Rigs.
Most of the time you would Rig with Bones but the Morpher Modifier allows for more precise movement of vertices

To use the Morpher Modifier you must create a copy of the Object and move the vertices of that Object to look like the expression that you want.

This website has more information on how to use Morpher Modifier and a basic Expression Sheet.

By adding the Morpher modifier to the Original Object and then targeting the Objects with the facial expressions you can change slider values in order to Animate your characters face.
You can also link these sliders to Objects in the scene, and based on that objects position, the sliders will change.
