A script to animate bicycle chain links, tank treads, escalator steps, etc. along a spline path. It's not a great script, but does allow for complex animated motion on the path (start, stop, slow, reverse, speed up); all you need do is animate the dummy controller properly.

Requires: a spline path, an dummy object animated along the path, and a geometry object for the "tread". A sample Max (v.8) file is included, as well as the all-important readme file.
