Hello there.
Somebody knows how beginning/ending tangents are calculated?
Catmull-Rom splines need them, but all automatic techniques I found give results that differs from Lightwave

LW uses Cardinal splines. Theres a tool to create "handles" to adjust the beginning and end tangents in LW.
On adjacent curves you can use the Detail-----Curve-----Smooth tool.
On single curves you can use Detail-----Curve------Control Points

What were you having problems with in LW?
