This was a custom developed script by Steven Caron, it cost a few $$$’s to develop but I am happy to share it if it helps others.

If you use it, please do quote the source and developer 🙂 and please share your results! always interested to see cool stuff(s)! You can download the .rar above that has the actual Python script in it, or you copy and paste below directly into the Script Editor.

We offer no support but this should work fine in Softimage 2012.

    Thank you, guys for great script and workflow! Lee, could you help me understand, how it's possible to hook up Melena at all this curves. Every time i tried to do this, Melena only took 1 curve at at a time.

      Hi Yuriy, at some point I will try and put together a mini tutorial. I don't have time currently but it does work, you just need a certain type of set-up. Ano Matkovic's site might be useful, try a Google for now.

        Hi Lee and thank you for the tip. Anto well known as a developer of Kristinka nodes, does this mean you used Melena and Kristinka? Anyway, tutorial would be awesome! Thank you.
