Hi all, I need to animate a ribbon from a tight roll into a flowing strip (see attached sketch!)
I'm even sure how best to start so any pointers very welcome.
thanks

May be you will find that this animation is too regular,
and the ribbon texture has no UV map yet, just a try:

Two object a disk and a ribbon,
the ribbon is a rail extruded rectangle
with 4 slines in background (one drawed spline duplicated).
In Layout the disk is simply rotated,
and the ribbon is shifted with Shifter plugin.
