Using different types of vertices

To have full control over editable spline vertices, you are going to want to convert between the four different types of vertices. So on my star here, I am going to select Vertex mode, and if I click around on these, you can see that they all have Bezier tangent handles and I can use the Move tool and adjust those. But I have got other options too. If I want sharp corners, I might want to use a corner vertex instead.

So, for example, let's say I select these vertices up here and I can right-click to get the quad menu and up in the upper-left quadrant I have got some options for these different types of vertices. You will see there's a check box next to Bezier, meaning that that's the state of the currently selected vertices. So I can choose Corner, for example, and now I have got sharp corners. And you will notice if there are two corner vertices next to each other then the segment between them will be a perfectly straight line.

What else do we have? We have also got Smooth. So a...
