Spline Points and Mesh points don't have orientation information associated with them, but only Position. This causes various Generators that work with splines to use arbitrary orientation values for the generated meshes, and if the Source splines have some sort of rotation, this can cause flips in the mesh during the animation.
In this video, I will show what this problem is, and how we can use Rail Splines to define orientation.
