Shape Keys on Curves?

Post by TheFallenWeeble »

Interesting problem. According to the release documentation, you should be able to apply shape keys to "Meshes, Curves, Lattices and Surfaces" easily. However, I don't see a Shapes panel in the EditButtons (F9) for anything but Meshes. When pressing IKEY, there's an option for Curve (or Lattice or Surface) just like there's one for Mesh... but nothing shows up in the Shape IPO window.

Is anyone else running into this? Is this a bug in Blender or the documentation, or am I missing a step somewhere? I'm running a CVS checkout that I did today.

I've got the same problem. I also thought i read about this shape key UI integration feature for curves, lattices and surfaces, too, instead of only for meshes. Now I know, where I saw this.

A few days ago I posted this here as feature request.

You're right. I've just mentioned it to the devs and they confirmed that it is unfortunately the case for now. I'll change the docs to reflect reality. Thanks for pointing it out.
