I’m having a spline problem in an animation I’m working on.

I put together an XPresso setup where the splines are following the position of a plug and a bulb. I have the plug moving up, then down and the splines follow it well until the plug rotates.

Is there a way to have the spline end points rotate as well when my plug rotates or do I need to keyframe Point Level Animation for them?

I’ve attached my file to better explain.

Thanks for any help!

I don't think it's possible to set (or get) a spline point's rotation via Xpresso. In this case I think you'll have to create one or two more points inside the plug and tie them to the position of the plug (or nulls that are children of the plug) in order to make the wire bend correctly.
