So I want to model a tentacle and have it travel along a spline path. I'm pretty sure I can do this with the mograph tracer, I just somebody to point me in the right direction. How do I get the tentacle on the path?

Hey Im not 100% on this but you can try Align to spline under tags- Cinema 4D tags

I can think of three way to do this and I'm sure there are more.

The easiest I can think of is to use the cs tool which has a 3d stroke path already setup to do pretty much what you have in mind I think.

You could use this tentacle pack,, that use's tracer object with particles. I have used this my self in a little animation,

Another idea would be to use what you have modeled and use the spline wrap to control it on the spline. You just need enough divisions in your model for it to bend correctly.

Hope this help,
