Can someone tell me how to unroll a scroll? I need to make a scroll that unrolls from the top roll down the screen. Any help would be great.

Have you thought about using a morph.
this is probably the simplest and quickest method.

Or you could set up bo nes for it and animated it that way.

A very simple and fast solution might be to just move the scroll object down and animate the textures. Not very realistic but convincing enought that the scroll is unroling. Could be enough, don't know what you use it for...

Ok, I like the morph idea, but once I subdivide a paper object, then triple the poly's, how do I get it into a roll so I can perform the morph?

Hi Tony,

Have a look at this Newtek tutorial and see if it helps in anyway.
