Hello,
I can not for the life of me get these bones to stay in normal axis when applied to a spline

Followed this video numerous times and have even moved to creating the bones as Skelegons and then converting to Bones in Layout ( I like this better)
https://www.lightwave3d.com/learn/article/lightwave-116-animate-a-shark/

In the attached screen shot you can see that as soon as the Bones are linked to a Spline Control they go nuts.
I've tried resting their position and rotation prior with no beneficial results.

Files attached if anyone wants to see
(Basically it is a simple ribbon that will deform like falling in the breeze when complete Susan Koman anti cancer project)

Its because your spline control nulls arent aligned correctly... rotate them all 90 on heading and its fine. As a rule you should make spline control unll sets down the Z rather than X.
