Live Curve Array is yet another bloomin' duplicate along curve script, this one however, has some 'advanced' features.
• Fully animatable (just animate the Extra Attributes on the CurveArrayControlGroup object). • Interactive controls (all changes are live). • Taper (sadly no longer based on a graph control because of mel limitations). • Twist (sadly no longer based on a graph control because of mel limitations). • Curve offset and phase. • Face direction of curve (the 'enable rotation' checkbox). • Multiple instance models can be used (they will be randomly assigned).
Recovering an array: Select a CurveArrayControlGroup before opening the script and it will recover all of your settings. Handy no?
Note: When using 'Enable Rotation' make sure your source model is aligned along the Z axis.
Let me know if you have any problems.
1.1: • Added animation capabilities. • Removed graph controls because they don't work with animation in mel scripts. These have been replaced by sliders. Boring. Sorry.
