Thanks! I had been using the “Panel” to peer into nodes, but that looks more comprehensive.
I was also wondering why those extra curve nodes where in there. So that explains it well.
I think I get the multiply node now. It looks like everything was normalized to the 0 to 1 domain before that node, so by multiplying, it looks like you get all the values leading up to the actual length, versus relying on reparameterizing the other nodes. It’s a very elegant solution. My hats off to you.
I think this will be a long time to sherpa up the side of this mountain, but I am trying my best… I have had a couple successes already, using curve attractors, and the image sampler and it is interesting to see the differences in computing time given different answers to the same problem. In my mind, I pictured most of this to be real-time, but some of it it pretty intensive.
Okay, back at it… brain … hurty…
