there is this script called Zen Tools, which allows you to distribute Verts on a curve.
But unfortunately Zen tools is discontinued... so you cant run it in Maya 2022 for example.
Is there any other script that can do that in maya?
Here you can see in action what im talking about (around minute 4:00)https://youtu.be/Um0dhzLezTE?t=227
Im sure one of our scripter could update it.
Create new shortcut to Maya, open its properties and add "-pythonver 2" parameter there.
I think you're after something like this? https://im3djoe.gumroad.com/l/arcDeformer
