Default CV Curve Problem


I'm just giving a simplymaya tutorial a go (link below), but I've summbled upon a problem that I hope someone can find a solution for me....

I'm trying to paint on a CV Curve to create a rocket trail, but when I select the CV Curve and select 'make paintable' I get the following message:

"Warning: Only PolyMesh and NURB surfaces can be made paintable: curve1"

- It works for the instructor when he clicks it though, but I get the above message :headbang:

Work Around, as i dont know the tutorial, but i love just going in a different direction.

Duplicate your curve, scale it so that its just on the inside or outside of your original curve.

Go to surfaces and select loft.

Now you just created a Nurbs Surface, now you can start painting whatever you need to paint.

have fun.
