Skinning Continuity


Skinning Continuity is a useful method of enforcing equal behaviors across cross-sections. C0 continuity simply enforces that the feature lines pass through the same location on the cross-section and all other controls are left to the user to define. Applying C1 continuity enforces the condition that the Angle and Strength both be equal on the before and after sides of the cross-section. Users maintain control of the before side feature lines if they choose. C2 continuity adds the condition that the curvature is also equal on the before and after sides along with the Angle and Strength. Users should avoid applying C2 continuity unless absolutely necessary as varying continuity types across cross-sections can cause unpredictable interactions. This video demonstrates how Continuity can be applied to cross-sections and shows some examples of using Continuity effectively.
