is there a way to deform a model that bends along with an animation path? best example i can think of is a piece of paper moving down a rail. any hints would be greatly apreciated.

thanks,
cort

there are a few plug-ins that come with LW that do this, I think one's called "Serpent", there's also a tutorial somewhere on the web about using a morph and a bone chain for this effect - it's much too complicated to explain here, I don't remember it all anyway
