not sure if this trick is possible.. maybe with some script function. What you can do is create the spline, make a cable and use the advanced paint script to manually scatter the objects along the rope generated. Maya hs this function in animation mode

Thanks for the suggestion. THats kind of what I'm looking for, but with object placement. If you got anything else let me know.

assigning a Path Constraint Controller to position will do exactly what you want.

using a simple maxscript will definately speed up the process, if you are doing several hundred objects...

Yeah I should be placing a few hundred objects on 3 different splines. :( Do you know of any existing scripts that do this?
