" Select curves longer then "

Hi Guys,

I was wondering if there is possibility to select curves longer then (certain size). I have used Toon outline and then generate curves out of it. Now I have 3000 curves but I don't need that much. There are lots of small tiny curves that I would love to delete. Is there a way I can select only the short curves and delete them. I mean a way other then doing it manually ,script or plug-in ?! user added image

This should do it. Change 10 to whatever length you want. Select your curves, then run the script in the MEL script editor.

string $curves[] = `ls -sl`;
float $length = 10;

select -cl;

for ($curve in $curves)
    float $curveLength = `arclen $curve`;

    if ($curveLength > $length)
        select -add $curve;

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
