Lecture 7: Intro to Geometry, Splines, and Bezier Curves (51)

Unlike higher order polynomials Catmull offers greater local control in defining the curve. It also shares similarities to Hermite interpolation by allowing for control of tangents at each control point. Catmull also has many variants such as the Centripetal Catmull-Rom that is used for controlling over/undershooting of the curve at points of high curvature change.
