Description

The selected curve gets degree elevated to the specified amount. Lets say we have this circle with order 3 (so degree = 2).

Now we want to elevate it to order 4 (degree 3). So we select the circle in line mode, apply a NurbsCurveDegreeElevation modifier and set the degree to 1.

Notice the new control points. This modifier does NOT change the shape of the curve, but the knot vector and the control vertices.
