I am quite curious, if there would be an object in Max/Jitter to create curves with control-points.
In fact I was searching already a long time, but didn't get, what I wanted. My goal would be to define as many control-points is I need. Then the "object" should create a curve between these points. For example: I define a start point (x,y or maybe also z), then the next point, and another, and so on...
What I already found:
--> cubiccurve-example.pat (jitter-examples/java):
a great thing, but only 4 control-points. I am not well trained in Java on "mxj" :( , so I am not able to add some more control-points... and also antialiasing doesn't work here, don't know why...
--> js_jitterspline-example.pat (jitter-examples/render):
--> bspline (taken from the externals on http://www.jasch.ch):
this is a very interesting object, but I don't understand, how to put some more control-points into it! I got an example from the forum under: http://www.cycling74.com/forums/index.php?t=msg&goto=113922&rid=5269&S=668f46a5697fcc4a9418021c8f9cd257&srch=curves#msg_113922
but I want to define the points with "Number-Boxes" and not with a "Function". The other problem here is, that the curves are drawn into a LCD-object, so rendering doesn't work, I think...
I hope that somebody could give me a useful hint or idea how to solve my "curve-problem"!!!
