[Sidefx-houdini-list] point distribution

Hi there,

The Resample Sop gives you even length distribution so just deform 3D space before you resample :-)

Resample the curve evenly first with high point count. Then give it uniform UV's and copy the UV's to P to do an unwrap.
Now displace your points away from the unwrapped curve. Maybe with a VOP SOP and a ramp parameter. 
Resample evenly again but now with the desired point count and move back to the original position stored earlier.
The more displaced the higher the density.

Hi all,

Just a quick question, is there a fast way to get a point distribution along a curve so it is like this :
->.. .  .   .     .     .   .  . . ..

I'm just rusty and have an idea on how to do this with point colors, but need a jump start.
Anyone with some jumper cables?
