Path deform again
Upfront im sorry I have posted this image before but have been trying on and off for weeks now to work out why im getting this problem. I have a helix (grey) made renderable. I then have another helix (blue) made renderable which I have applied a path deform (WSM) to in order to deform around the grey helix. The problem im having is the little glitches you can see in the blue helix. I dont have this problem if I just path deform a helix along a line. Any thoughts on why this is happening and what I might be able to do?

Hey mate, someone else came up with this helix problem and Ive managed to find a fix for it, although neither him or I had any holes open in the mesh so I hope this solves the problem, here goes...
-convert your helix to an editable spline (or add a edit spline modifier, probably better so you can go and re-adjust the helix at a later date)
-then go into segment subobject selection and select every segment in the helix
-right click and choose 'curve' in the top left quad menu.
-go into vertex mode and select all the verts
-right click and choose 'Bezier' from the top left quad
-right click again and choose 'Reset Tangents'
