Dear all:

I have been read a few definition of the degree of a bezier spline. But I still do not understand what's the exact meaning of it. As I understand, if the spline function is n-differentiable then it's of degree n-1. Is this correct? Another way is that if the control point position is determined by n neighbours of the previous level then the spline curve is of degree n-1.

Am I understanding correct?

Could anyone give me some more straight-forward and easy understandable explanations please?

Thanks
