Hi Im wondering if anyone can help me here. I have modelled a 20 note for a simple model. Its folded in half length ways and rolled into a spiral. I used a helix to model it and then extruded it the required legth. The only thing is that I now need to animate the whole thing unrolling and unfolding. It just ends up being a mess. I have animated the radius 1 and radius 2 but it ends up looking like a huge wave getting bigger and bigger and thats just the geometry the mapping is going all over the place.

Has anyone any advise or help that they can give me on this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Slimjim
