Lets Make Improved Bezier Curves

 ·   ·  ☕ 1 min read

Extending Bezier Curves. Turns out you can recursively define them with relatively little work. In this video we’ll implement Bezier Curves using a recursive algorithm so we can support any number of points from 1 to thousands.

The Bezier algorithm works by compressing two points on a line down to an interpolated point between them. By writing an algorithm to recursively reduce a list of points down to a single point on the line we can solve for any curve.

Grab the code to render these Bezier Curves from GitHub here:

The first part of the Bezier Curve development is here:
