Vertex animation???

How do you use vertex animation? I looked at the wiki-site and there i found some information, but it didn’t work since I cant find the vertex type in the IPO type window. Where do I find it? (blender 2.41)

Thanx in advance

You can do it using ‘shape keys’. You can find these in the ‘editing buttons’ (f9) under ‘shapes’ (the tab behind ‘modifiers’). If you add a shapekey for several mesh changes, you can edit the IPO curves for these keys (choose ‘shape’ in the IPO curve-type menu) and morph from one mesh shape to another, possibly combining them as well.

Hope this helps! If you find a different way to do this, please post it here, I’m interested in this topic too.

There’s also something called “hooks”.
