This is still a work in progress so please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you find any issues or have any questions relating to the script.
The script is designed to take a single CV curve as input, simply select the curve, run the script and fill in the required fields in the UI.
The script gives you several options for how the controls are orgnised, for example:
'explicit' control method will use the CV layout of the curve to place the controllers, this option ignores the 'controller number' option. 'Uniform' control method will layout the specified number of controllers evenly log the length of the curve, 'Ramp' control methods will stagger the controllers closer to the end of the curve, this also takes nto consideration which algorithm to apply to the ramp.
The Dynamic attributes will add nHair dynamics to the spline, this can be a little unpredictable at the moment especially when used in congunction with the stretch options.
I will hopefully be updating this script soon and will provide a tutorial as well.
