facial expressions

hi

i need to change my detailed smooth mouth to a screaming pose.
what is the best way to do this in blender? i tried push and pulling
all the cvs for the mouth but thats a hell of work!

Try hooks.

I have always used relative vertex keys (gives you the most control). Some people use an armature for the mouth and can get pretty reasonable results. Although I have never tried it myself hooks may give you a third alternative. Yes it is a lot of work but in my use of other 3d software I haven’t found a much less work intensive method in any of them if you want really good control of expressions. Blenders limit on the number of vertex keys can be troublesome.
