Hi, I would like to use the eyeball material from ToonNation for a character. Unfortunately it's not possible to set the Offset to a value higher than 100. Is there a way to get the eyes up higher than 100? Russel

Russel, I use to know the answer to this but I'll punt and give you a possible work around instead. Create the eyes in a separate model and add them to you character in the Choreography or as an Action Object (model within a model). That's the solution that springs to mind. Sorry its not a full solution. Rodney

dont use the builtin eyeball offset at all, use the materials transform property.

Yes! That is the full solution. :)
