Hey Michael,

Perhaps I'm overlooking something simple but I also assumed the same. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work like that for me.

I do indeed have the chain parented to a null created from motion tracking the actor's fist. However, there doesn't seem to be anyway to tie the other end of it to my saw blade null/track point and get acceptable results.

I've attempted to pick whip things in Element 3D like "World Position XY", "Y Rotation" and "Bend" (under Deform) to the saw blade but it bizarrely pushes the chain in all kinds of strange directions. It can even push it completely off screen or wrap it around itself (picture attached).

Sometimes I get something that seems to move properly in 3D space but it's severely misaligned with the scene.
