I have animation that contains curves that are acting like cable. The curves vertices are attached (hook) to empty so it will work right way. Everything works fine, but I need to import this animation to unreal engine 4 and you can't import curve or hooks. The hook modifier has button "apply as shape key" but I can't make it work. Is there any tutorials or can someone explain to me how can I convert hooks to shape keys.

One solution could be using a rig with according weight painting. Unreal should be able to import that. Also posting an image might help finding the right answer!

My solution was to make the curves as mesh and let the hooks be where they are. Then I creat new bones, that are attached to the hook. Now I can attache vertex groub to bone and then I can imoport the whole think.
