I'm trying to follow a tutorial on how to animate moths. I'm using shape keys and when I put a key frame in the shape keys and add some noise the moth does not move even though the shape key value is clearly changing.enter image description here

Ian Hubert Lazy Tutorials if I'm not mistaken.

You need to add the shape key, put the value to 1 and modify the wing position. Keyframe/noise after that.

You don't see the wings moving because you didn't modify the wing position with the shape key at 1.0, by the looks of it.

  • $\begingroup$ Just to re-trace your steps. For the Wing object you're - -creating a shape key (Key 1) -set Key 1 value to 1 -go into edit mode and rotate the wing (every selected vertex) to get a second wing position -go out of edit mode and do the keying $\endgroup$
