I'm cloning some polygons along a dynamic spline, everything is working fine but the cloner keeps flipping on its axis randomly, I'm assuming this has to do with the spline dynamics doing something weird.

I turned off "align clone" but then I dont get the same natural look. Is there another way?

the dreaded 'gimbal lock' a problem for all 3d, as the aligned clones go though the axis they flip to keep mathematical orientation. The only way out is a Rail Spline I think. Make a copy of the dynamic spline and move it a bit away from the spline your clones are on and the clones will face the rail spline.
