    Hi there.
    Once you make a ribbon spine... how do you place it in the character following the spine curve?
    The tutorial shows how to make it straight, but didn't show how to make it fit the curvature of the spine (unless I didn't notice it in the tutorial).
    Will I have to translate/rotate the top/mid/bottom locators to make it fit?

    I'm trying to make a MEL script that does it automatically on top of a CV curve. I can't figure out how to make it be "properly" placed in the character.

    If you can setup a straight spine (or leg or arm or anything for that matter) it'll simply your life a lot.
    There are ways of course to setup anything on whatever default pose, but if you can somehow control it, do it and make your life easier

    I haven't seen the ribbon spine in many years now, so I don't know if I can help much with this particular situation.. sorry
