You can right-click a curve and select "Edit Point" to view the points of a curve. (not the same as vertices remember...) Is there any way to add a point to a curve in a specific place or at least add many points uniformally to the entire curve yet keep the EXACT original curvature? Reason I'm asking is because I created a curve from an isoparm of a surface, need to cut it in a specific place, yet still need it to line up perfectly with the surface edge I duplicated it from. None of the current edit points are where I need to cut the curve, hence why I would like to add one. __________________ www.Darkware3D.com Last edited by Darkware; 13-03-2004 at 04:22 AM.

Guess I just got that so embedded into my head that I forgot that "curve points" were used for more than just adding extra knots to your curve. lol Thanks a lot Mike. __________________ www.Darkware3D.com
