Bézier Curves - How the Recursive Algorithm Works

A set of n+1 points will create a Bézier curve of n-th order.

  • Drag the first slider to select the number of points. 
  • Drag the point on the slider "Recursion Level" to 1 to see the first new set of points. 
  • Continue dragging the Recursion Level slider to the end to see all recursive steps and how the last point, generating the Bézier curve, is constructed.
  •  Hit the Play button to follow the generating point on the Bézier Curve.
