Spline Wrap Problem

Recommended Posts

I am trying to smoothly and tightly wrap the DNA twice around the Histone octomer by following the helix. All I can get is distortion. What am I doing wrong?

hi,

if this is what you want, it's because you have the matrix stepping on y and z, set y to 0.

  • Thank you! I was hoping for a logical solution. That was driving me crazy.

     

    In the interim I used Spline Effector which worked perfectly but Spline Wrap has way more options. Now I can animate it wrapping around using Spline Wrap.

     

    The collective wisdom of this Cafe saved me again!
