Drawing with Bézier: Bézier Curves in Animation & Design

A Rigorous Introduction to Bézier Curves

One of the more intuitive and interesting geometric objects used in computer graphics and animation is the Bézier curve, popularized by French engineer Pierre Bézier in 1962 after he used them to design automobile bodies for Renault. Bézier curves are defined by a common parameterization, which provides them with several properties that make them easy to analyze and manipulate while still requiring no mathematical knowledge to use.
