Default LightWave - Eye movement help needed

I'm trying to get some realistic eye movement in my model. Eyes tend to move in very fine jerks and not smoothly but trying to replicate this is proving a challenge. I tried converting the morph moves to stepped which looked better, but was just wondering if anyone had come up with another way in lightwave or maybe a script to give this movement?

In school, we set up eye rigs, and they made a normally tedious and painful job very easy, --for which we were most thankful.

William Vaughan created a helpful video tutorial on this very subject under Animation - Creating an Eye Setup for Animating Eyes With Ease. It's number 160 on this list: ftp://ftp.newtek.com/multimedia/movi...eTraining.html

Once you select the video, press the Launch button, and the video will download. I keep all of his videos in my personal training library for quick reference or to practice some of the basics before I teach a class. Great stuff from a wonderful teacher!

You can apply the same simple technique to point multiple gun mounts in unison, etc.
