I'm trying to build an animation of a sail rising up a mast. Effectively, the sail is in several segments, so realistically, each segment intersection will move at slightly different rates. It will also collect on the deck. (I'm sure you can visualize it.)
First, is there a way of parenting two armatures to one segment, one on the top edge and one on the bottom. I know that a single armature can be used with two bones, but they only "attach" to the center of the edges, not the whole edge.
Second, I can't seem to get the bones to run along a curve independently from each other. If I could do that (and the connect to the whole edges) I can keyframe the movements closely enough.
Any thoughts on how to do this?
