Please Help us Beta Test the New Sidefx Website! May 9, 2016, 10:27 a.m.

I have a problem. My username contains a dot and this works with the new page. I can login. However when I try to edit my profile I get this message:
Username can only contain letters, numbers, dashes or underscores.

Which means I am not able to change anything there without changing my current username.
Can't we have a separate username from the profile page url?

Voice commands to summon nodes. Feb. 11, 2016, 7:01 a.m.

Well typically the speed of putting down your nodes is not the critical factor for anything non trivial.

It makes more sense to identify the patterns you tend to use repeatedly and create presets (for example as a shelf button) to build them rapidly.

Also I can't imagine myself talking to my screen all the time at work

Resample a Curve with a Ramp June 17, 2015, 3:50 p.m.

I have an otl which does not do exactly what you want but might still be sufficient for your usecase. It does not generate the points based on a length, but it uses existing points and shifts them along the path according to a ramp or a channel (for additional control).
It's a little bit weird to use, but it is just remapping the old position to the new position. When using the channel mode the horizontal range is 0-1 while vertically you can use as much as you need as it is remapped automatically.

Unfortunately it only works well with polylines for now so you have to convert to NURBS -> Resample -> Pointshifter
