I know how BÃ©zier curves work, but how do I make one that loops smoothly? I understand that each control point adds another line to the algorithm. 3 points requires 2 lines 4 points requires 3 lines 5, 4 etc. What I don't understand is how to get the starting point and end point to loop smoothly. If they're in a loop them how does one account for the infinite points in the loop? Is this possible with a BÃ©zier curve? Last edited by skipjack; December 30th, 2016 at 03:57 PM.
