Vector shapes in Sketch are made up of a combination of control points and Bézier curves. In this video, learn about the different kinds of points and curves available in Sketch and how control points can be edited to modify a shape.
- [Instructor] Sketch is a vector-based design tool,…so the shapes that we create in Sketch…will all be made up of control points,…and the paths between them.…This text in our logo has been converted to outlines,…so it's actually all made up of vector shapes now.…So let's command-click on our logo,…and then you command too to zoom in,…and take a closer look at how we can edit…some of these shapes and curves.…We can keep double-clicking on our logo,…until we can see these control points.…These are the control points that make up our vector shape.…
I'll hold down the Z key and then…drag to zoom in just on the top part of this B.…Now if you're seeing pixels like I am,…you might want to hit control-P and toggle off…this show pixel setting,…just so it's a little easier to see the points and curves.…There are four different kinds of control points…for vector shapes in Sketch,…and they can be either curved or straight.…Straight points like this one…will give us sharp angles and straight lines.…But these other three types of points…
