Shape key experts outhere: can anyone explain in detail for this "newbie" how to

  1. whats the process of making a sequence animation with shape keys? i know they are not for this but i need shape key as output;
  2. how to get a single shape key from that sequence??

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANY HELP…or refer me to somoen who can help.

I have mastered shapekeys.

  1. At the timeline, switch to shape key editor so it shows the keyframes. Once you have created a shapekey, it saves that shape in space. Sliding the bar to 0 shows the normal mesh, 1 shows the new shape you just made. You can keyframe 0 to 1 to go from a frown to a smile. (this is all under the Vertex Groups area)
  2. I don’t know what that means.
