View Full Version : change curve mapping type?

Hey all,

Anyone know if it is possible somehow to change the curve tools mapping type from cylindrical ? I'm trying to 'draw' tyretracks on a mesh during an animation, which would work I guess if the curve tool allowed planar uv mapping as well as cylindrical - I get the feeling I'm missing something obvious, since I would have thought that cylindrical uv mapping along the length of a curve would be harder to work out than planar.

Or is there an easier way to 'draw' a texture over a mesh, that's also aligned to the path of the effector / shape of the curve, during an animation ?
