# Soft body hook onto an object? [duplicate]

So I'm trying to achieve an animation in BI where there is a string that is attached at both ends to 2 separate objects. But I can't find anything that lets me take my string and attach it to them. The string is an elongated cylinder that has had a lot of loop cuts in the middle. Help please?

• Okay, this is what I'm looking for, but I dont see the vertex tab while the curve is selected. Oct 22 '14 at 22:34
• I'm not sure what you mean..

• So in the duplicate that you found (thanks for that) the answer includes taking the two end vertices of a curve, and making them into a vertex group. however, I cannot do this, as the toolbar doesn't give me that option. Oct 22 '14 at 23:00
• You don't need a vertex group for a curve, select a vertex and press Ctrl H hook to new object to create a empty and hook the selection to it.
