Hi there -

Just wondering if anyone had the same problem: I've created a spline with about 150+ points, and was hoping to convert this into a joint chain, then controlling the whole chain using the original spline as an IK spline.

However, when I hit the Conversion>Spline to Joint command, only half of the spline is converted to joints. Is there a limit to how many joints can be created...? There doesn't seem to be any sub-settings in the command.

Thanks kindly for your help.

Sorry - I was kinda 1 step away from the solution w/o knowing it.

I simply noted the location where the joints stopped, duplicate then cut the spline into 2, and convert the remaining portion into joints. Then I just needed to parent the latter half joints to the former, and voila.
