When you create a curve in Maya 7.0.1 whether it's a CV or EP curve, doesn't matter tried both, create 3 points, drawing box like shape and then use "Open/Close Curve" to close the shape. But in fact the shape won't be closed, because if you go to Attribute Editor it says that the shape is periodic.
I'm doing Maya 3d animation course and i asked teacher to ask Autodesk support about the problem, because we tried everything and it doesn't work. So they responded saying that we need to select any edit point in "Edit point" mode and make datach curves and then the shape becomes closed - well doesn't happen so. The Maya help obviously says to do the same.
If anybody's wondering why in the world i need the closed shape
. Well the thing is that Bevel Plus option works with only one shape/curve at a time, but if you select two separate shapes/curves and go to Surfaces>Bevel Plus, then it gives the error and the solvation to this error is to make the curves closed - said Autodesk Maya support.
Oh one more thing to mention, if i make those two separate lines in Illustrator and import them as Adobe illustrator Object, then they're closed and it works the way i need them to work with Bevel Plus. But i consider that such tiny thing should be working inside Maya because it's really nothing complicated.
So if anyone has any idea how to make the curve closed i would greatly appreaciate any help.
