Could someone remind me how to disable the JCMs (or whatever they are) that naturally move the eyelids on M4 or V4 when making the figure look up or down? I need to have a character looking down but not have the eyelids close as they do so.

Thanks in advance.

Try this, I selected the head and Locked the Eyelids before I added the Eyes Up Down dial. Select the little COG and or the Lock on the Dial.

This was DS4.5Pro. By the way.

How do you lock the Eyelids, they’re not a body part?  wink  Also, my figure is already made with all morphs, so I can’t do anything “before” adding any morphs, sorry.

Hi…

You could try this, in the scene tab expand the head and select the right and left eye nodes. Then in the Parameters pane adjust the Up-Down or Side-Side as needed.

Since this is direct movement of the node bones the morphs that are slaved to the Eye Up-Down pose control should not be applied when you move the eyes.

I have used this method many times with M4 and V4 eyes just for those occasions when you don’t want the eyelids to move.

Hope this helps… smile
