I think the most useful are these two:
Sin vs Cos:
Tan, otherwise known as ease-in-ease-out:
Thank you for the link! I am a much better “visual” learner, always have been, so webpage is a big help to allow me wrap my brain around how these functions actually work!!
I have bookmarked the page for the inevitable times in the future where my brain will cease to function properly. :eek: Thanks!
Nice stuff, kudos for sharing!
I knew one at some level but seeing gif inspired me to actually use it to create interesting paths for enemies/projectiles.
Thanks for these, checking out the link now!
EDIT: Also, I wish Animated PNGs would take over for GIFs. Those gifs look bad on the forum’s dark theme.
Love sort of thing - understanding math visually is far easier for me.
@ - agreed about animated PNGs. Sucks that more browsers don’t support it.
Visual is much easier for me as well!
site is a **fantastic **tool for visualizing math using graphs (it’s totally free, too):
