Creation Tools - Along a Path is not properly working
« on: February 18, 2009, 09:03:09 PM »
When I choose spacing to any distance it doesn't work like I think that this should work. It is really pity because this is function that I was really waiting in FP.

Oh... you are right, spacing option it's not working well when the spline is not normalized. We didn't know this bug :o

Please, use this workaround to fix it:

1.- Set in the spline "Interpolation->Steps" value to 0
2.- Apply a "Normalize Spl." modifier using "Seg.Length" with the desired spacing
3.- Use Creation Tools->In Vertex Positions

I just found the problem in the source code and fixed it. The patch will be included in the next beta release.

Sorry for the inconveniences.
