This tutorial introduces the anatomy of the NURBS curves in MAYA and the
tools available for creating and modifying the curves.
MAYA allows you to create and edit Curves with 2 basic tools –
Control Vertices (CV) and Edit Points (EP). We will examine the Tools in
detail later in this Tutorial. Let us start by explaining exactly how
the shape of a curve is defined.
All Curves in MAYA are ultimately defined using Control Vertices
(CV) – Edit Points (EP) just provide you with an alternative method of
editing the curve. Therefore, as Control Vertices (CV) are the backbone
of Curves, it is very important to understand how work.
