I went over some basic facial animation. I duplicated a creepy looking face and made it smile. Then with some magic, I could now make the original face smile a little or a lot via a slider. Next I made another duplicate and raised its eyebrows so now I could do the same with the original face. The main idea is that you can make a number of set poses and then by manipulating all the sliders you can create a variety of facial expressions. This is probably more advanced stuff than I need to know right now. There were more online lessons regarding animation but I figured this would be a good place to stop and go back to the book.
