In a demo of LW8 I they talked about 'Spline Control', but they also said that it was already available in 7.5c, this was a little plug that could easely control something like a rope.

But I haven't been able to find it, atleast, it's eather not under the deform tab, or it's not under the name splinecontrol.

Does anyone know this??

Thanks

Hi, I have 7.5c and it appears in the Displacement tab of the object propierties.

You need to load splinamate.p plugin.

First you aply the SplineControl displacement plugin to the object and then you can modify it using th SplineControl Tool (maybe you'll have to add it to layout to see it)

Look for splinamate.p on your disk. Once you've added it, it should come under the deformer and tools plugins.

I prefer to use http://www.shift.gr.jp/html/staff/sp/sp000003.html
shift spline transform as you can use multiple splines from the one instance of the plugin and the control points are nulls, which makes it easier to animate with.
