LightWave relative Endomorphs system is awesome but sometimes there is a need to use absolute morph maps. LightWave allows to create such morphs but there was no way to use them in Layout. LW native morph mixer for some unknown reason cannot see them.
However smartMorph sees them all! You can use both absolute and relative morph maps and there is no difference in usage in animation (but there is huge difference in modelling). smartMorph gives you ability to use LW feature that was always in LW but was unawailable.
