Curvy released with custom actions [ECOSYSTEM] [JULY 2019]
« on: February 14, 2013, 02:49:20 AM »
Hi,

we just released Curvy, a tool for fast Spline interpolation, with full playMaker support. You can create and modify splines easily from your FSMs.

Have a look...

Simply get the PlayMaker package via the Ecosystem browser:





Cheers
Jake

Hi,

 Very cool, I have added that link to the addon wiki page.

 I dream one day that someone will make a system to generate curved of specified length, like hoses, doesn't have to be fanzy, I need this desperatly... Like a bezier curve that would adjust to keep when possible the length.

bye,

 Jean

@Jean: I've recently ran over a Hose system in the AssetStore that maybe does what you want. Your problem sounds more like rope-dynamics than curve math to me...

Hi,

 physics based rope is too much unfortunatly..

Do you need this in the editor or at runtime? It should be possible to restrict moving control points within a certain spline length, but that would be too slow at runtime. Also, while this would restrict the length, it wouldn't look natural by itself, because there would be no rope/spring dynamic attached.

Hi,

 Ideally I would only need the following:

 two points and tangents ( a simple bezier curve), and as points and tangents are moved, the curve actually keeps as much as it can the actual original lengths. so the tangent direction and magnitude would needs adjusting.

 If you can do that at runtime with no performance impact ( I mean here not more than simple maths), then you are in. If you think you can do it, pm me, I'll pay for it.

bye,

 Jean

Hmm, I guess this is beyond my math wisdom, but I'll reflect on this with a math pro I know. Besides that, Curvy doesn't do bezier curves (at least for now, manual tangent handles aren't in yet). Don't know if I add Bezier, because Curvy does KB curves with TCB parameters for each tangent of a segment, so I don't really see a need for Bezier and manual tangent hazzle.

Hi,

 no worries. It's indeed something that I feel requires some exceptional skills on applied mathematics... it could also simply be a matter of finding the right paper on this case as well... but I failed so far to find anything on this... :)

Bye,

tHi,

the latest version 1.04 just hit the AssetStore. Beside some new features and bugfixes this release added even better PlayMaker support. We completely reworked all existing actions, added new actions and more examples. Also the documentation was improved (have a look into the custom actions docs).

And we're not done with Curvy, expect some awesome new features in the near future!

Curvy 1.5 released! Lots of cool new features like Shape/Mesh Extrusion, Cloning, Create Mesh from Curve etc...

As always, Curvy offers full playMaker support and comes with a lot of examples!

We've made a video showing most of the new features: here!

Cheers
