is a setting specifying the type of spline generated by Spline and SplineFit.
  • A composite Bezier spline is made up of a series of third-order Bezier curves with C^1 continuity. It alternates interpolating points and control points.
  • If the number of points given is even, then the last two points are reversed so that the final point is interpolated and the next to last is a control point for the final segment; if odd, then the final vertex is doubled.
Composite Bezier splines go through some, but not all, of the points:
