curve modifier

is there mode doc on this modifier showing how to use it?

it seems that you ahve to move the object above the curve so tht it can deform it
but is there other ways or what can be done with tht
may be a video tut !


If the curve and the object share origin (alt-g both of them to move them to zero), and you have the right axis set (i always have to play with this), you should be able to bend the object with the curve such that it follows along visually.

I usually use it with a curve-length array modifer before the curve one so I can make an arbitrary chain of things curve.
