Bézier curves

Bézier curves - 2.0

Francesco Mastellone (effeemme)



It's a simple implementation of the quadratic bézier curves, with maths taken directly from wikipedia. Press up and down to move the dot along the curve. Using this to implement paths is left to you as an exercise =) (translation: Francesco is lazy and won't do that =p)


Now with cubic Bézier curves! Todo: n-complexity curves and paths.

Oops. It just so happens that to make paths cubic bézier curves are better. Expect those soon!

It's just two lines of code after all =p
To everyone: a wrong version was up for two hours before I uploaded this one, it used the same gameApp module but rather represented the projection of a point onto a line. Redownload in case you got that!

Very Nice! Can I use it in PAdLib?

PS: I do plan to add them in PolyPlay ;)
