Hi all,
i was wondering if there were any suggestions as to how i can get a line to basically "grow" along a path. I would really appreciate it.

A)Model the line straight, and use curve conform (displacement plugin).
or
B)Morph a heavily segmented line from short to long, add bones in a line along the length, then bend those into the shape you want, and morph from short to long (switch on the 'Use Morphed positions' in the bone panel to get this to work properly. )
