Essential Animation Quick Tips for Cinema 4D Using the Align to Spline Tag with Xpresso

In this tutorial I’m going to cover some awesome time saving tips when using Cinema 4D’s ‘Align to Spline’ tag or splines in general. I’ll go over how to get objects to align & animate with the tips of an object created by a SweepNURB or a SplineWrap Deformer as one would when creating such things as a power cord with a plug, or a headphone cord with a headphone jack, or any abstract animation where you need an object to move perfectly with the movement/growth of the SweepNURB.
