Is it possible to animate, using shape keys, a nurbs curve that will be dupliframed along a path? So that the duplis change shape according to the animation?
I have had success with this using object keys, so that the dupli object stretches or shrinks along the path, but what about morphing into another shape?
Are there limitations about which types of animation may be dupliframed?
I’d like to model a bar that changes in cross section along its length, from a square cross section to, for instance, a four-leaf clover cross section and back to a square again.
My idea is to use a surface nurbs square for the cross section, then morph it using a shape key and dupliframe the animation, then make the duplis real and skin them.
Thank you for any replies.
