I'm trying to get a bendy bone to match a 2 handled curve. The bendy bone setup is 3 bones: 1 bendy bone, and its head and tail bones. You can adjust the rotation of the head/tail in edit mode, and also adjust parameters like Ease In and Out to set the base pose of the bone. Here's a gif of manually adjusting a bone to match a bezier curve:
If we knew the relationship between the control point distances and the Ease In/Out values, then a script could snap the head/tail of the bone to a control point, and then align it with the handles, and then set some amount of Ease In/Out based on the distance to the handles to match the shape. But its not clear what the relationship between the values is. I used 2.58 and 1.34 to approximate it, but that's not exact (the base value being 1 in edit mode, and 0 in pose mode as they are added together.)
Anyone know what the proper math would be to convert these? Or is there some other way to accomplish this? I have a complex hair setup that's already based on curves, and I want to generate a bone strand for each bit. So its not practical to do by hand.
