I’ve only been using Maya for a little over a year. This is what I need to do. I have to animate cylnder fence type of mesh along curve and have it bend with the curve witch I have figured out how to do that. Now at some point the animated mesh stops and then moves backwards back down the path.
Ok now once the mesh has stopped. It needs to expand at just the front end witch I have done with a Lattice, but once I have animated the Lattice expanding the mesh. For one the mesh itself no longer animates along the path it just stays still. And second I can’t figure out how to animate the lattice staying with mesh as it moves along the path.
