Michael could you pleas make script that will produce specified number of isocurves on selected surface?
For example on first object I made 5 curves and on second 7 (with edges). It wiil be good to automate this process.

Hi Andrei, try the attached plug-in command, copy it to the \commands sub-folder and then that will make a new command named MultiIso available which can be triggered by a shortcut key or by pushing Tab and typing in MultiIso and pushing Enter.

It takes an edge curve as input, the edge curve should belong to only one surface (use Edit > Separate if needed), and then the source points for the isocurves are taken as evenly spaced points along that input edge curve.

The regular isocurve command does not generate results that exactly overlap over top of edge curves, so this will not duplicate the outermost ones, if you want those added you can generate those quickly by selecting and using Copy+Paste though. This should generate all the internal ones though.

Hi Andrei, sorry it won't work for that direction in the case of a sphere, that's just due to how the script functions by generating the points along the selected edge. A sphere is a case that only has an edge running in one UV direction.

Bit you can generate your desired isocurves for the special case of a sphere though by selecting the sphere edge, and running Transform > Array > Circular with the sphere's origin or pole point as the center point for the circular array.

It depends on the surface you're using it on - but yes often the edge that you select as the generator will be running in the U or V direction and in that case only the opposite one will work with that edge. You would then need to select an edge in the other direction to make the other set.

Wow, love these scripts! MultiIso, DistortCurves and Randomize offer a lot of power to get rid of order and smoothness, when desired.

is there a difference between MultiIso+/MultiIso Scripts and the _cMorph Script? Because I did get errors if I run MultiIso+, but no problems with the _cMorph script. And I see they are similar, or they aren't?
