comment Calculate the first derivative without the function?
I actually created this curve using a cubic spline formula, so the set of points that make up this curve have already been interpolated. Can I just differentiate the cubic spline function to get the derivative? I wasn't sure if that particular function could be used in that manner.

comment Reconstruct Control points in a Bézier Curve?
Unfortunately I'm sort of a math idiot/newbie, but I'm willing to do research and learn. I'm off to Wikipedia to gain an understanding of Bernstein Polynomials, so I can better understand your answer. You posted it as a comment, so I can't mark it as an answer though.

comment Reconstruct Control points in a Bézier Curve?
I know this seems like a "Can you do it for me" question - but I generated the curve using a computer program - I don't actually know the equations. I am assuming you are telling me to use the original equations for the cubic bezier curve, and just plug in the values I know, and leave out the values I don't, and solve, right?

comment Which Interpolation should I use to create a curve?
Splines fits the bill - and there are enough variations to fit all of the different requirements. Thank you!
