in my scene, a character is turning a hand winch, cranking up a chain, the chain is going through one pulley as, the chain does not line up with the gate, and the gate raises. my questions are, how do i animate the chain through the pulley realistically? do i use a motion path? or do i somehow bind the chain to a skeleton? and finally, how do i wrap the chain around the winch as the character cranks it? any help would be greatly appreciated
