I'm doing something for which spline control would be perfect in theory, but I'm having a really hard time where I need more detail in the path. I thought that when you needed a straighter path you had to put more nulls in that area, but what I get when I do that is a very deformed path. The path doesn't go straight between nulls, but the closer I put the nulls, the more the path gets deformed, even creating sort of a spike upwards. That's what would happen with a bezier curve if the handles were extended too long, but in spline control there are no handles. Is there any way to make the tension shorter or greater?

I wish. I put in a feature request for it, using the z-scale value of the handles to control the tension, if you do too maybe it'll go in!
