SPLINE WILL HAVE A STAND IN OBJECT IN THEIR PLACE, sorry :(.
Particle Spline is a spline object that uses a particle system as a reference.
Basically it draws a spline between all the particles based on its age.
Add - brings up a dialog that allows you to bring in a particle system
Spline Options - determines how the spline is interpolated.
Bugs - lots of them
Lots of screen update bugs, you need to step through a frane at a time to get
the correct spline Seems to be missing first set of particles released
Does not work with the lofter not sure why
Need a stand in object when there is no particle system
