Linear expression alternative?
on Jun 10, 2018 at 6:34:22 am

I just learned about the linear expression from a guide for the use of timing an animation to a beat in the music of a video.
Linear(t,tMin,tMax,value1,value2)
Return type: Number or Array.

Argument type: t, tMin, and tMax are Numbers, and value1 and value2 are Numbers or Arrays.

Returns value1 when t <= tMin. Returns value2 when t >= tMax. Returns a linear interpolation between value1 and value2 when tMin < t < tMax.

The problem:

I only want to return a value when t >= tMin and when t <= tMax; So basically only when the value is between the minimum and maximum

I really don't know much about code at all and would really appreciate any assistance

Like this maybe:


if (t >= tMin && t <= tMax)
linear(t,tMin,tMax,value1,value2)
else
value
