I've built an algorithm that displays a B-Spline. I'm not sure if it is working correctly. For example, take this picture:
the red points are the control points and the blue points are the various points on the curve. Each blue point is calculated through a fixed timestep. The Knot vector of this (clamped) curve is [0 0 0 0 0.5 1 1 1 1] and it is calculated using DeBoor's function in the interval [alpha, 1-alpha]. In this clamped case the first and last control points are added back at the end (though there might be some issues with the control points being drawn at their top left corner instead of their center, but it shouldn't matter).
As you can notice, the points towards the first and last control point appear to be more "sparse". I would explain this by it being due to the other control points concentrating the curve in the upper part as the number of points to calculate is constant (100, with alpha incrementing by 0.01).
Are there better ways to sample the curve in order to have a constant displacement between curve segments?
