Hey folks,

Does the trajectory node allow editing the trajectory points and updating the animation in real time? I tried with the manipulators in the example scene but it doesn't seem to affect the animation (although the notes in the example section for the trajectory scene do say that the animation updates instantly if the trajectory curve is changed in the viewport).

Yes.
Try to create new trajectory system for that scene.

The counterpart tool in Maya2012 is much better and faster.

Yes, I saw a similar tool in the Maya 2012 tech preview video and it looks promising indeed. But we just migrated to 2011 some time ago and looks like we'd have to stick with it for some time to come.

I'll try what you said and post here if I run into issues. Thanks again, Peter!

Hey Peter,

Does the trajectory node allow tweaking curve tangents in the viewport as well? I couldn't find any option for the same. I know you want to phase this out since Maya 2012's got its own updated motion trail node now but for pre-Maya 2012 users your node seems like the best option so far.

It does not allow tweaking of tangents. But i remember now that at some point i had something in there about that.
Will check and report.

No, there is no tangents code there. Sorry man.
