I've attached and example of what I'm trying to achieve. The red object moves along the x axis and has a cable attached to it, then other end of the cable is attached to a stationary object which is blue. I've tried using spline dynamics, but the results are not exactly what I'm looking for.
Any ideas how i could better refine this? I kinda need it to move in one motion as I've set up a control for the movement of the red piece so that will be driving the dynamics. I had thought of using a bunch of nulls in a tracer object but that would require hand animating the movement each time.
