    Hi, there are few things took my attention.
    Barb size has to be manually resized and a slider would be nice.
    When it comes to more complex splines and the higher frame count, the barbs seems to fail to follow the speed of the wire, wire seems to follow spline points while barbs are generated along the path this situation increases the barb stay behind like 150 frames or more.
    Barb strand count, randomness cannot be edited well its a spline shape but since xpresso is locked (understandably) wire shape cannot be changed and option from lets say 1 to 6 strands and random position would be very appreciated.

    I might be whining too much for 6$ xpresso preset but I’ll be finally a grammar nazi : “Thikness” needs a “c” in it.

      Hello Noctivagant,

      Thank you for reaching out and letting me know your thoughts on the preset.

      Im currently working on a update for this script which will include most of the topics you mention and a couple more. Covering the so embarrassing “Thikness” typo. I have to say I’m a little confused with the strands and the random position issue you mention. Perhaps send me an email with a little more info and I would be glad to look into it and hopefully come up with solution. By the way… you are not whining, you are helping me get a better product. Thank you.

      Keep in touch.

    Hi, Great plugin/template, I just wanted to know why the barbs start disappear once there are 50 of them, and how I can stop that happening.

    I would have liked the plugin for C4D R13 or are there only for the R14
    thank you

      Hi Steffen,

      I have tested on R13 and R12 and works the same as in R14. You won’t have trouble.
