Pflow to Splines

3 votes

This Script will generate animated Splines on PFlow Particle trails.

The Script is mostly self-explanatory. You just have to pick a Pflow source and press the "Generate Splines" button.
You can additionally choose to "fade" the Splines after x frames. This will help to vanish the splines when the particles are dead.

SplineTrace is a MaxScript that can be used to:

- convert a 2D Image into spline shapes, where each spline corresponds to an interior or exterior contour (outline) in the image. Works best on Black/white images but can be used on Colour images by adjusting threshold value.

- create a flat 2D object which corresponds to the "black" areas of the image. Any internal "white" areas are removed from the object.

- quickly turn a plain 2D image into a solid 3D object.

- create a flat 2D shape or 3D Object from an existing spline (not just those created by this script)
