look out the screenshot.
I wanted to dublicate 8 samples of NurbsCircle (1 highlighted) along the curve path
with good scale and good rotate.
yeah u understood exactly like EXTRUDE style.

I think there should be a solve to do this in one step with a MEL script to do this .this would be ?:surprised

You could attach teh profile to the path and then eithe raniamte the scal eof it over time and then eithe rwrite a MELs cript or manually duplicate the curve at different point sin time to get the series of scaled profiles.


int $X=1;
int $numberofprofiles=10;
int $animatecurvetime=30;


while($X <= $animatecurvetime){

currentTime $X ;

duplicate curve1;

$X=$X+($animatecurvetime/$numberofprofiles)
}

i think the best way is strude the curve along the path and made the curves in the suface.

all this with a mel script will be very easy
