I was playing with splinecontrol and noticed on the LW9 version there is an extra section on the menu panel. It says "Use Object CPs" and then asks for a name prefix. Does anyone know how this works. Is the prefix looking at nulls? Or do I load in a spline curve with CPs built in? I looked in the help file in LW9 and it's for an older version of spline control (no cps from other object). Thanks in advance!

Anybody can explain the use of this tool?

Get Shift_SplineTransform from my web-site. It's much more flexible, albeit in chinese...

Even in chinese SST is far superior :)

thank you, i know about japanese Shift plugs and Fujio's BezierBend but i would like to know if the Splinecontrol was debugged. Then i saw this CP's option and this request from DanD.
so Thank you, i'm not in a rush. Just like to push deeper my knowledge of lw. (you never stop learning. Something is still hiding somewhere!)

Sadly there are parts of LW not worth the effort getting to know. Sockmonkey is another one.
