    I'm having a priority issue that I believe is related to a spline generator. I'm using xpresso to get the location of polygons on a deformed mesh. To enable this I have to have the xpresso tag at the generator priority level, and this works fine. The problem is when I try to move the points of a spline to that new position. The points are always lagging a frame behind.

    I believe this problem is caused because the spline is generated before the points are moved. Is there a way to force the spline to regenerate at a later priority level.

    I tried writing a tag plugin that on Execute just said
    > op->SetDirty(DIRTY_DATA);

    but that didn't help any. I'd welcome any suggestions.

    I've provided an example in hopes of getting some feedback. I wouldn't normally care that much but this is for a project that really relies on this. It involves straps attached to the character's body.

    Interestingly I just noticed that if you have the spline in point edit mode it works just fine.
