ECS 178 -- Geometric Modeling
Unit 3 -- The Bezier Patch
Patches are just lots of curves glued together
Bezier Patches are a continuous set of Bézier Curves.
If we fix one parameter (either u or v) in a patch, we just obtain a Bezier curve.
A Matrix formulation of the Bézier Patch.
We can expand our Bezier curve matrix formulation to a Bezier patch
Subdividing a Bézier patch.
As we did with Bezier curves, we can also subdivide a Bezier patch.
