Can someone please help me - I have an animation that I am working on that I have zipped and attached to this post. I am trying to get the water gun handle to pull the hose throught the hole in the large plate, then retract and go back but have the hose look floppy. I have added the bones, but it is acting wierd.

I would really appreciate someone taking a look to tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks a million!!

THeres no zip file but I would probably use IKBoost to animate the hose. :)

IKBoost is part of LW as of version 8. Its much better at handeling long IK chains. You might also look at using splinamate which is a spline deformer inside LW. :)
