Morphing (Shape Keys)

Morphing (also called Shape Keys in Blender) is a feature which allows you to modify mesh objects in real-time. The most common use case for this feature is creating parametric objects which can change their dimensions, shape, thickness, holes, profiles etc.

See the following demo as an example:


Blender shape keys are exported by default. Please notice that due to hardware constraints, the total number of shape keys is limited to 6 (+1 base model). All shape keys which come after these 7 will be ignored in Verge3D.

Morphing in Verge3D for Blender


To animate shape keys in Verge3D, add keyframes for their Value parameter. The animation of shape keys works exactly the same as for any other animation parameter. You can run you playback at application start or use animation puzzles for that purpose.

Controlling via Puzzles

To manipulate your shape keys in real-time there are two puzzles: get morph factor and set morph factor.
