Py5Graphics.bezier_tangent()#

Calculates the tangent of a point on a Bezier curve.

Description#

Calculates the tangent of a point on a Bezier curve. There is a good definition of tangent on Wikipedia.

This method is the same as bezier_tangent() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see bezier_tangent().

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.bezierTangent

Signatures#

bezier_tangent(
    a: float,  # coordinate of first point on the curve
    b: float,  # coordinate of first control point
    c: float,  # coordinate of second control point
    d: float,  # coordinate of second point on the curve
    t: float,  # value between 0 and 1
    /,
) -> float
