Random Curve length through stamping?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks

I was trying to generate a lot of curves through the copy sop and then randomize their shape and length. I thought I could accomplish this with stamping by randomizing the point locations (x,y,z) based off the point, but since the input for the curve points has multiple inputs in a single box, I haven't been able to get it to work.

I've noticed that I can input for instance frame number and that works:

0,0,0 2,3,0 2,6,0 0,$F,2

But I can't figure out the right syntax to do stamping the same way... or even if it's possible.

Any suggestions?

You could create the curves by using lines and attach a Carve sop that uses stamp() to modify the length of each line. You could then use a vopsop to modify the shapes of each line.
