super important to initialize oriIndex variable with value like 0.
Othewise ShapeGetDiffPoint will not work and return false !!!
int oriIndex=0;
FBVertex posDiff;
FBNormal normalDiff;
pGeometry->ShapeGetDiffPoint(i, j, oriIndex, posDiff, normalDiff);

Tip about motionbuilder store retrieve
View FbxStoreRetrieve
// In SDK samples in most cases, store and retrive use this kind of condition
if( pStoreWhat == kAttributes )
// This is not correct, cause kAttributes is a bit flag and it could be used with kMerge (in merge pass)
// So better to use this kind of condition instead
