Ok I know this can be done because Ive done it before, but cant remember how. Basically I just want to make a very thin line (fishing line)...I think I did it in the past by using the spline draw or bezier then just converting that to an open path polygon.
I just cant remember how you make it an open path poly that renders...Anyone know?

cheers
Boom

(p.s. dont say just freeze the spline because that makes it a closed polygon/shape)

Freeze the spline and kill the points along the sides you dont want. :)

Doesnt work...Do an S shape and see for yourself.

Freeze it, hit b for bevel and set the tool by right clicking. Dont give it any shift or inset.
Hit m to merge the points. Delete the longest 2 pt poly and the frozen poly.
