See these docs on facial animations (http://dev.wallworm.com/document/76/making_facial_animations.html). And if you own WW Pro, see this video on DMX and Wrinklemaps (http://dev.wallworm.com/document/162/wrinklemaps.html) 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.
