Angry CV and EP Curves

Hi,

I'm desperately trying to find out what the difference between a CV curve and an EP curve are. I cant seem to find a straight answer anywhere.

Please help me!!!!!
Thanks Paul

eh ...
they are the same type of curve, your just drawing it with different methods.

Ep stands for edit points, your placing points that define where it will pass through.

Cv is control vertex, you are placing down weighted points that define the shape of the curve.
