I am a scientific and medical illustrator who is fairly new to 3dsMax, so this may be a simple question, but it has me stuck. What I have to do is animate how an organ forms by forming a tube from a basic layer of cells. I've included a schematic of what I'm trying to accomplish. I've been told that using morph targets is a good way to go, but I'm having trouble manipulating the layer of cells to create the morph targets. So far I've tried modifiers like FFD box and Affect Region to no success. Any help would be awesome!
