Craft Director Issue with Sofitmage 2012

Post by Caveman » Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:08 pm

Hi I am having a problem using Spline Speed Controller in Softimage 2012 SP1.

(1) I sketched a path

(2) Created a Spline Speed Controller in CDS.

(3) Went to the configuration window for Spline Speed Controller and unticked the box for Use Craft Curve Generation

(4) Selected the Spline_Speed-Controller_01_CarriageNode clicked on the Constrain>Parent in Softimage and Middle Clicked on the curve to make the Carriage Node a Child of the Path.

(5) Moved the Spline_Speed-Controller_01_CarriageNode near the path and clicked on Snap Carriage to Closest Point on Curve.

And BAM the carriage is scaled to 0 and it automatically moves to the center of the World in Softimage(of course)

And everything fails.

Should I not parent the Carriage node to the Curve. Please Advice.

Hi, can't I edit my post?

By everything fails I meant I am unable to use the Spline Speed Controller as a result of the Carriage Node snapping to world center instead of snapping to the curve path.

Thanks for reading. Anxiously waiting for a response.

So, does no one use Craft Director Studio with Softimage? Please guys tell me if I should parent constrain the carriage node to the curve that I have drawn. Or do I need to do something else in Softimage.

Please guys I am anxiously waiting for a solution. Your product is awesome, please support me with the same awesomeness too :mrgreen:
