Hi, So something I just kind of realized as I have never really dealt with a ribbon setup before is that the positions of the follicles isn’t conforming to an even distribution when deforming the ribbon. It makes sense and in the past my go to approach have always been to use a motion path on a curve which conforms in this fashion. 0.5 is always in the center of it’s full length.
I have been thinking of a way to have the follicles behave in the same manner, but not sure of a solution to it yet. I guess an approach would be to offset a curve down its middle(with construction history, on) and have locators placed on it as a motion path. The follicles would then have to use the closest point on surface(if possible) to shift its U value to be at the same position as their corresponding locator. It doesn’t seem like a very elegant solution though.
I was hoping someone has dealt with this before and have a solution to it.
