I'm new to rigging, so hopefully these errors aren't glaring :) I'm trying to pose this hose and keyframe it, but the hose warps when I move the bones (I used a curve with IK spline for the bones). Also, I'm not able to keyframe it.

Here's the resting pose:

Here's what happens when I try to move it:

I've attached the .blend

Unfortunately, bezier curve control points themselves are not keyframe-able. You can, however, make a "hook" to those control points by selecting them in edit mode and pressing ctrl+h. The hooks created this way are keyframe-able, and should give you the level of control you are looking for.

  • $\begingroup$ You can also use the Anim-All addon. It will allow you to keyframe the control points of curves. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Sep 21 '17 at 19:59
  • $\begingroup$ Awesome ctrl + h totally worked. Still figuring out Anim-All too. But how do I deal with the deformation of the hose? $\endgroup$ – lakerice Sep 21 '17 at 20:29
