Lecture 7: Intro to Geometry, Splines, and Bezier Curves (131)

What kind of models are bezier subdivisions generally used for? It seems like a useful concept however there seems to be a lot of shortcoming, most noticeably changing one single control point has a huge impact on the entire subdivision.


Most models would be made of more than one cubic patch and changing a CP only changes that patch and it's neighbors.


Regarding what lwg0320 mentioned, I think they're referring to how changing one control point would impact the location of resulting points in the subdivision, so all the subdivisions calculations cascade and thus change (?). Not sure if I'm interpreting the question or the answer correctly.
