Changing a control point only affects the curve locally Makes it easy to control the shape of the curve In opposition to: global control Example (local control): Moving one control points affect locally

Parametric Continuity Conditions To ensure smooth transition from one section of a piecewise parametric curve to the next, we can impose various continuity conditions at the connection points. Controls continuity and smoothness between parametric curves

a) Geometric Continuity: G0: curves are joined G1: first derivatives are proportional at joint point, same direction but not necessarily same length G2: first and second derivatives are proportional b) Parametric Continuity: C0: curves are joined C1: first derivatives are equal (magnitude and direction) C2: first and second derivatives are equal. If t is the time, this implies the acceleration is continuous. Cn: all derivatives up to and including the nth are equal.

Interpolating Splines Hermite Interpolation Defined by two points (P 0 and P 1 ) and two tangents Controlled locally Cardinal Splines Needs four points. Calculates the tangents by using two extra control points Kochanek-Bartels Splines Same as cardinal, with extra parameters, tension, bias Hermite Spline

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
