Offset Curve bug on some paths

Some paths get distorted results with the Offset Curve filter.

Take these two paths. The only difference between them is the position of the control handles for the middle node. I don’t know if this is relevant, but in this particular case the distortions only happens when the offset value is between 18 and 62.

Offset Curve (2.3 KB)

it is trying to intersect the two offsetted curves and picks the wrong intersection.

Yup. Offseting bezier path is a really tough thing to do and there is no correct answer. Even Illustrator doesn’t give you good results.

I see. Do you think there is a way to fix it or should I get used to work around it?

I fixed it.
