Bezier curves..


I'm wondering if there is any good method to approximate a higher order (any degree) Bézier curve with a new set of quadratic Bézier curves? If this is a to hard problem to solve, then is there any way to do it for just cubic curves (one 3rd deg. curve -> two 2nd deg. curves)?

Any help appreciated!

Best Regards

Of course you could just pick points on the cubic curve and fit a quadratic curve.

Are you trying to do a small number, 'by hand' as it were? Or does it need to be fully automated, like doing thousands?
