Rope rappelling and fast-roping off a helicopter using nHair or rigged rope?


I’ve actually been looking for ways to do this. First I’ve thought about just rigging the rope, but I thought the rope won’t look great when dropping from the chopper; so I decided to use some dynamics. I recently learned about using nHair for the rope through youtube videos and it was perfect for the first part of what I wanted to achieve. The only problem now is how’d I allow a character to grab a rope with dynamics applied to it and slide down?

I’ve seen this thread over here right another dynamic rope question, rappel effects ? , but I don’t understand some of what duncan said, what constraints did he use, etc.

I was hoping one of you guys could give me some help. Like what should I do? Are there any shortcuts? Techniques?
