I'm unable to edit any meshes when applying a shape key. Any sort of transformation does not show any when I use the value slide. The only thing which transforms is the scale I'm trying to scale the selected part up to the edges of the shape I've tried to follow tutorials but the mesh never changes for me when I am in edit mode and this only happens when I start using the Shape keys

  • $\begingroup$ <img src="http://blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com/embedImage.png?bid=1656" /> I'm trying to edit this to construct over time and I seem to be able to get the results if i started with a new shape then keying the constructions. Still unsure why I can't transform that object though $\endgroup$

Disable "apply shape key in edit mode"

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks that helped a great bunch I was also trying to Key frame in a manner similar to After effects instead of treating the shape keys as sliders for separate animations. $\endgroup$
