FE FlatnessOp

FlatnessOp

Rotates each curve towards its facing direction.

Inputs

Each curve in the Input Curves about the cross axis from its original geometric direction to its provided direction.

Parameters

The rotation of each vertex of a primitive about that primitive's root is a ramp from Rotate Root to Tip. The ramp can be made non-linear with the Gamma. An additional Random rotation can be applied to each overall primitive.

The rotation is made towards each primitive's facing direction, specified by the primitive vector Facing Attribute. For each primitive, a rotation axis is determined by the cross product of the original root to tip vector against the vector in the facing attribute.
