How to get travelled distance and distance to travel
#1
Hello,

I use curvy splines to create a track. The track is not a loop. How do I calculate the travelled distance and the distance left to travel?

Thank you!

Hi

Use CurvySpline.GetNearestTF to get the TF of the nearest point on the spline. (see the documentation to learn more about its parameters).
Then use CurvySpline.TFToDistance to convert that TF to a distance. Let's call it D.
The traveled distance on the spline is equal to D.
The distance left to travel on the spline is equal to : CurvySpline.Length - D.
Here is a link to the API reference of the CurvySpline class: https://api.curvyeditor.com/FluffyUnderware.Curvy.CurvySpline.html

I hope this helped.
Have a nice day.
Please consider leaving a review for Curvy. This will help a lot keeping Curvy relevant in the eyes of the Asset Store algorithm.
