So err...yes...I've been trying to figure out why it's been doing this and I can't work it out

The error occurs while the facial animtor is applying the deformations to a head. It says one of the vertexes is missing...so I okay it and then it just pops up again, and again and so on. So it leaves me to beleive that it can't find any of these freaking vertexes...and I ain't gonna sit there okaying 11,000 message boxes

Any ideas?

Ah...I think I got the problem...with some geometric acrobatics

What I had to do was boolean union the teeth to the head because they wouldn't behave if I left them alone, and to do that I had to triangulate the entire head and the teeth.

So this time around Idecided to smooth divide the oral cavity then do some jiggery pokery with her teeth...it's not perfect and it's kinda strange but it does the job, I mainly only need it for static expressions anyway. (its working it all out now as I'm writing it actually)

Maybe I overloaded it.

EDIT: Never mind...it's done it again...right at the last moment too
