Catmull-Rom Curve Fitting and Interpolation Equations
Jerome, Lawrence
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n6 p842-849 2010
Computer graphics and animation experts have been using the Catmull-Rom smooth curve interpolation equations since 1974, but the vector and matrix equations can be derived and simplified using basic algebra, resulting in a simple set of linear equations with constant coefficients. A variety of uses of Catmull-Rom interpolation are demonstrated, including data point interpolation, image surround and key frame animation. (Contains 7 figures.)
