excelent work

in your video the polys go from outside to inside. in my 2013 MAx they go from pivot point. it's nice you can take the pivot point and start the animation from a specific point if you want but for some reason i can't recreate the coming from outside look you have in your video.
if you add position and rotation to equation you got yourself a commercially viable plugin :) thanks, and keep up the good work.
