In this video, learn how splines are curves that have a freeform shape. Unlike a line or a circle, splines can use more than three points to control their shape.
- [Instructor] Now I'm going to talk about the Spline Function.…You can either download the Exercise File…or select F1 on the keyboard,…if you have the help documentation,…download the file and open it up.…Let's get to it.…So, here we have some points…and the way the Spline window works is,…you'll notice before we actually pick anything,…is you have a little radio button right here.…Add Point After, Add Point Before,…and Replace Point, it's very important you pay attention…to these as you're creating your spline.…By default, it's always add the next point…after the first one you selected.…
There's Point 1, Point 2, Point 3,…and you'll notice the spline goes directly…through those points.…I'm going to open this up…and you'll see, here's Point 1, Point 2, Point 3,…number of points, and go on my merry way…by selecting the rest of these points.…Pretty straight-forward.…I'm going to cancel, go back into Spline,…and I'm going to select these in the opposite direction…and I'm going to open this up,…and what I want you to notice here is,…
