I'm not sure if this is more of a math.stackexchange.com (or physics??) question, but here it is:
How can I find out the distance traveled by a Bezier Curve? For example, the distance traveled by a Linear Bezier Curve is:
distance = sqrt(pow(x - x, 2) + pow(y - y, 2));
But what of a Quadratic, Cubic, Nth-Degree Bezier Curve?
My goal is to figure out the "resolution" beforehand, so I don't have to waste time checking if the next point is touching the previous point.
