Chapter 3. Editing Geometry Models > Drawing a ribbon following a model

Drawing a ribbon following a model

Trailing ribbon can be thought as a colored ribbon following a flight or helicopter. It can be used to represent banners or streamers dragged by the aircraft, or demonstrate the flight paths in military simulations. A ribbon is never a simple quad. Its points are located on the flight line and they will go after the animated plane all the time. All these demands require a dynamic geometry in which all vertices are moving.

With the information provided in the last paragraph, now we can start working on the interesting topic.
