I need to make a ribbon-like arrow animate in a spiral motion, what are some ways that I can achieve this.

Hi,

I'd like to make a ribbon-like arrow animate along a helix.  The arrow head should follow the path while the ribbon part stays visible behind it... so it sort of looks like it's growing.  I don't really know where to start so any ideas/suggestions are welcome.

I figured these both out... use the slice modifier for the ribbon like deal... and you can animate a P cloud along a path using a assigning a path costraint to the particle system and then tweaking the particle system's properties

I would also like to know if there's any way to make particles follow a helix path.
