Spline Field Layer

A Spline Effector is primarily used to arrange objects along a spline and a Spline Field Layer is used to spatially define an effect. This can, for example, be a tube around a spline, a spline projected around a specific axis as a volume or a creeping motion effect along a spline.

Splines can either:

The spline names will be assumed in the Field list. The Spline object name will not be displayed with its name in the Field list.

Tip:
Don’t forget that spline generators such as Hair objects (that can generate splines) can be used: they can, for example, then be brushed interactively in a specific direction.
