Hi Peter,

In the pointCloudToMultiCurve scene, what is the curve node that is plugged into the pointCloudToMultiCurve node? Its not a standard curve node I can see.

I am also very interested in this node. maya has a lot of powerful nodes, but they are just like black boxes, and our users do not know them, we can only create them using the commands on the menu. I hope peter can design a function, you can sort all the Maya nodes, to facilitate our use of a combination of soup.

It is a standard node, it manages multiple curves at once on the scene graph.
Documentation is obscure, but it automatically creates, deletes, updates curves parented under it.

Thanks, I wondered what the node name was

[EDIT]

Ahh not to worry, I just found the setup under the tools menu so its all working now. Just for future, how did you create the curveVarGRoup to automatically generate the curves? If I just create the node in the node editor it doesnt work the same way.

If i remember right you need to parent just one curve (any curve) object under the curveVarGroup and from that point it will start doing its thing.
