I have a plane and added a curve modifier to it. But no matter the number of sub-divisions or loop cuts, the deformation doesn't get smoother beyond a point. I have tried using smooth shading, applying subdivision surface modifier (to the plane as well as to the curve) with sufficient number of sub-divisions, to no avail. Any idea what must be going wrong? sharp edges protruding regardless of the no. of cuts


You can try both method

Method 1

Select the curve go to curve tab and in Resolution - Preview U : increase from 12

enter image description here

Method 2

You have added loop cut vertically and no loop cut horizontally

So just select all and delete with limited dissolve

Press W key and add subdivide and Press f6 to increase the count to above 7

No need of subsurf modifier

Apply smooth shading.
