Just got Lightwave and have got to make a product for school that moves.
Basically there is a cyliner, and attached to the cylinder is a thin screen that is supposed to retract into the cylinder: i just need help to know how i capture the animation of the screen moving back through the cylinder.
I need to know: if the parts need to be seperate, how to record the animation.
Hope someone can help, im still noob at 3d software, thanks.

Take a look at this video. Then think how it might apply to rolling up your screen.

Thanks for that, the movement of the carpet/screen will work, however i want it to go into the cylinder at the side: which will be a reverse roll of what is seen in the video, any idea how i change it?
