    Animating Cables and pulleys???

    How would one animate the interactions between cables and pulleys where as the pulleys move positions causing the cable to bend. Remember, the cable is moving all the while.

    I'm open so suggestions.

    Dunno what you mean by "pulleys" but SpolineTransform may be the thing for you.

    I used it to animate telephone cords, and it worked far better than i've hoped for (had to get to know it first, though )

    also if you are using LW 8 you could use dynamics.

    There are some nice examples of what you can achieve with dynamics in the dedicated dynamics section of "spinquad"
