    Hi folks,

     

    I’m a brand new C4D user so be gentle on me!

     

    I’m messing around with splines for the first time.

     

    A question: when i lower the bezier spline resolution (spline > object > intermediate points > subdivided > maximum length > high number), i only see the changes if i deselect the spline in the object manager.

     

    Is there any way to see these changes “live” as i’m editing the spline, or do i always need to deselect?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Daz,

    I’ve never really understood why we see the parametric instead of the actual spline shape until you deselect it. You would think that would be helpful.

    In place of this I usually just throw a short length extrude on the spline and continue editing – the spline stays smoother than it really is but the extrude will update in real time and show you all the kinks and folds the way the spline will render or affect other objects.
