Goal: create a dynamic rope (static rope animation using bones won't cut it)
-allow both endpoints to be able to move
-adjustable length (control slack)
-adjustable digit count (rope resolution)
the more flexible (in terms of potential applications), the better.
here's my start: http://upload.dfyb.net/uploaded/rope_firstattempt.cap
(feel free to build on top of this or start from scratch)
not sure if i'm on the right track. interested to see if someone else can come up with a better way to do it. as you can see, i've not yet made it to where it draws anything between the digits.
