Specifies vertex coordinates for curves.


Specifies vertex coordinates for curves. This method may only be used between Py5Graphics.begin_shape() and Py5Graphics.end_shape() and only when there is no MODE parameter specified to Py5Graphics.begin_shape(). The first and last points in a series of curve_vertex() lines will be used to guide the beginning and end of the curve. A minimum of four points is required to draw a tiny curve between the second and third points. Adding a fifth point with curve_vertex() will draw the curve between the second, third, and fourth points. The curve_vertex() method is an implementation of Catmull-Rom splines. Using the 3D version requires rendering with P3D.

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

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.curveVertex


curve_vertex(x: float, y: float, /) -> None
curve_vertex(x: float, y: float, z: float, /) -> None


  • x: float - the x-coordinate of the vertex

  • y: float - the y-coordinate of the vertex

  • z: float - the z-coordinate of the vertex
