I have two Path objects that I've joined into a single object here for comparison.
The one above was generated with a Python script. The one below was added the typical way from the menu Add > Curve > Path
The trouble is, in the one above the curve doesn't reach the tip vertices, making it hard to control where the resulting curve will begin and end.
For example, this sphere has a Follow Path constraint on it, but that path begins at an arbitrary point. It's not useful.
What property of the vertices determines this, and how can it be fixed?
