See these docs on facial animations. And if you own WW Pro, see this video on DMX and Wrinklemaps which shows the process in that format (the wrinklemap video has facial morphs + wrinklemaps).

i don't own ww pro tho. I don't think i can work with the dmx format because format can be saved with >3 weight links on a vertice. With smd i don't have to worry about that limit. Is their anyway i can refer to this one when i try it, it won't work with 3ds max 2016.http://dev.wallworm.com/document/76/making_facial_animations.html

VTA has always worked here (using the methods described in docs linked above). But I will test again tonight for 2016 (as I am finishing up a piece of info to post and then leaving).

Not sure about that one. I've never messed with stacked morpher modifiers. I'd stick with a single modifier.
