Controlling morphs in sequence

Hi All, I'd like to trigger a series of morphs (lets call them child 1, 2,3 and 4) in sequence using a single dial (lets call it "parent dial").   So as I dial in parent dial I would like child dial 1 to to be dialed in until I reach 25% then child dial 2 until I reach 50% then child 3 until I reach 75% then finally child 4 is dialed in until I reach 100% on the parent dial.

1st is this even possible in daz?

2nd any turorials out there on how to do this?

many thanks!

    1st create the morph dials (Properties), then use Property Hierarchy (Window - Panes - Property Hierarchy) to assign the Parent morph as the controller of each Child morph, and set the scarlar values as needed. Pls refer to the attached screenshot...

    I'm not sure if there's a full tutorial demonstrating these... you may search 'Daz Josh' or 'Daz Sickleyield' on youtube to check their channels... there should be some relevant videos.

    PS: If you wanna 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% as the max value of each child morph, just enter them in Max Value fields accordingly...

    Hey Crosswind thanks for the response, the problem I'm having is that it fires all the children at once.   I'm trying to get the parent dial to progressively dial in each in turn until the parent reaches 100%

    so the parent dial would be:

    1-25%: Child morph 1: 0 - 100%

    26-50%: Child morph 2: 0-100%

    41-75%: Child Morph 3: 0-100%

    76-100%: Child Morph 4: 0-100%

    Ha! I totally misunderstood what you want... devil So set them as below:

    I could not scroll down to capture the full screenshot but I believe you'll know how to set it for Child 4 morph... For Child 1, you also can use 'Keys' option...other than Scalar. I just kept it simpler...
