Summary: We present a new four-point subdivision scheme that generates \(C^2\) curves. It reproduces cubic polynomials, has a basic limit function with support \([-4, 3]\), and is close to being interpolatory. The refinement rule is based on local cubic interpolation, followed by evaluation at \(1/4\) and \(3/4\) of the refined interval. We investigate the approximation properties of this four-point scheme and extend it to a new family of \(2n\)-point schemes. The performance of the new schemes is demonstrated by several examples.
