Basically I have 3 meshes connected to each other I want them to rotate in the positions they are in but I also need them to bend at a certain point. The rotation is fine the problem is with the bending. The bending effect will be done with a curve modifier. The curve will change shape at a certain point and I'll save it as a shape-key. The problem is when I apply a curve modifier to one of the meshes and choose the curve that passes through the three meshes, the mesh changes position and messes up the whole thing. how do I apply a curve modifier while maintaining the position of the mesh I apply it to?
