Deformation Order Remember if our character is bound into a skeleton chain, deformation order is an issue So what we'll do is create a Target_buffer All our blend shape animation is applied to that buffer target, which will then be funneled into the main geometry Be sure to name your target objects! The name of your target is the name your blend shape will have!
