Unrolled Scroll Animation

Hi all.

I’ve been using Blender for almost two years, needless to say, I know a solid 2 percent of the tricks available.

That’s why I ask the collective knowledge of this forum to tell me how to unroll the scroll in the following blend file, in the most efficient way possible.

The map should roll away, leaving a track of scroll following it.

Thanks in advance,

Make your scroll flat with a lot more geometry and subdivisions.
Add a Bezier curve and extrude one end into a nice scroll.
Add curve modifier to scroll.
Animate curve location.

Thanks, also what a fitting signature you have.
