Smile Scaling Portions of a CAL3D Model

Hello Vizard Support Staff,

I had a quick question.

I am attempting to induce a non-uniform scale on an Avatar I created in 3D Studio Max inside of Vizard.

I attempted to do the scaling as part of the animation in max, however I noticed that while the 'bones' appeared to shrink in size, the actual vertices had no scaling applied to them. The vertices simply bunch up in groups based on what bone they were apart of and moved on top of one another.
I am guessing the bones are remembering the translation they undergo due to scaling in max but not the true underlying scaling.

Is is possible to scale per bone to distort proportions via Max or in Vizard? I noticed there are no available methods for scaling a bone natively in Vizard 3.0 in the help file.

I have included an image of the desired effect in max, the initial start in Vizard and the the near end of the animation in Vizard.

Thank you,
