Are ragdoll physics possible? (nevermind)

Done search, nothing doing.

And I don’t want to do anything complicated. In fact, all I want is a 3-bone tube to bend as a motion-blur effect.

answer to your subject:
it isn’t worth the effort

I don’t understand what you mean by the body of your message though

Ah, okay. I was afraid of that. Oh well, I’ll get around it.

I meant that I wanted to make a bendable trail for an object that was all one piece, and delayed parenting didn’t work. I’ll probably use added objects that give the illusion of being all one object.

uh… just a stupid question, but do you know how to use armatures?

Yeah, but the motion can’t be determined beforehand (objects have random and tracking movements), which is where the problem comes from.
