I need help! I have to take a "rubber" disc 30 feet in diameter and roll it up into a cylinder and then unroll it. How would I go about doing this? I know I can do it with bones, but is there something in LW8 that would make it easier or quicker? Thanks for any help.

spline control in layout would probably be easy and quick.

If you are not going to use bones, check out the weightmap folloff tutorial

there's a great one on using it with rotate.

Using this you could have several endomorphs to fake a nonlinear morph at varios stages of the curve.

Not sure how you are going to do it but this may help.
