How to model a string?

I need to know how to model something like a string or a rope. It needs to be animatable (heh, everything in Blender is animatable). I was thinking of using curves (bezier), but I can’t figure out how to rig it. Thanks in advance.

I did a little bit of searching for this, but couldn’t find anything…

try modeleing the top and using the array modifier to complete the rope. then, by weight painting and rigging the rope is perfectly animatable.

Sincerely, and not ridiculous,


Ah the array modifier, how come I haven’t messed around with this yet? I had to convert the modified mesh to an unmodified one first before parenting to the curve. Anyway, thanks, I figured it out.
