its smooth because presumably you have your object within a hypernurb object...you can sharpen edges etc but varying where you put your cuts on the mesh...look very carefully at these examples and see where the cuts are placed..eg close to one another or spaced etc..secondard cuts etc...
anyway the link is in german unfortunately..but a picture tells a thousand words they are not really tuts but follow the examples links should help.

also check out the manual on weighting...might help.

you can't really do spline modelling like in some other apps...i guess it depends what you mean by spline modelling?...what you can do though it loft...or use the splines as guides for poly by poly modelling approach..it really depends on the the subject very often and you end up doing a combination of both at certain stages.

really you need to post pics of areas you're having problems with including a description of what you're having problems with...also a wireframe shot of the model or area you're talking about also helps. as at the moment i may well be passing you info that is not really what you're asking for and you may mean something else entirely...need to clear it up a bit more what you mean etc...then shouldn't be to much of a problem to help you out..there are loads of experienced people on here that can help/guide etc.
obviously some of the problems with modelling in 6/7/8 have all been resolved in the release of version 9 which means some of what you maybe asking for is available anyways in another version of c4d.
