Default Conveyor Belt problem

Hey, I'm trying to animate objects moving in the same speed along a conveyor belt, but can't find a way to quickly attach all of them to a curve and let them follow it with a small distance between them. Is that possible? And if not... Any other suggestions?

possibly duplicate the curve a bunch of times and just use one instance of a curve for each object you want to go down the belt

Yeah. But that takes alot of time when I have many objects, and I have to adjust the time on everyone of them to create the right distance between them. You sure there is no easier way?

look for the AS_treadCreation script (i think that's what it's called). Or you can attach them all to a motion path and play with the values to get them to space out properly
