i got a small problem and i cant solve it by now.
when orienting a curve onto different curves, they result may be once rotated “wrong” if the angle is 90°
i think, it results this way because the component always takes the absolute angle between two vectors and no negative ones. (?)
do you have a hint, how to solve that and get the orientation i want?
in example: curve (A) orientated onto semgements of a square
thank you and have a nice day!
thanks kim for the fast reply!!!
yes, i know that workaround, but is there a way to make it with the “Orient Direction” component since i need to scale etc in my actual work and the general idea of the component is ideal.
(sure i can continue from there and scale etc…i want to keep it as simple/short as possible)
thanks in advance!!!
(sorry, forgot to reply directly - hope you see this )
As you said, try that until Orient Directionworks as you expect.
One thing i noticed that this problem appears in your curve
but when i make a new curve it comes perfect , nothing i changed, just the curve
I have been playing with this and found the glitch only happens when the start-end vector of the base curve is perfectly parallel to the y-axis
for some reason -that is not completely clear to me- it reverses its direction when the original vector is parallel to the destination vector
yeah, so i ended up with multiple components to pack together all transformations.
yes, i noticed something similar, i baked the base-square and moved every point a little and moved them back to the original square - then it worked also fine
but if this is supposed to be like that, i dont know
maybe some has some insight and can explain this situation
would be happy to know more
thank you all for all your time!
