Easing and tweening: how to make a tulip?


    Sep 04 2013 | 4:36 pm
    Hi I'm having fun messing with (and breaking) some equations that relate to tweening and interpolation on linear input. What I would like is a simpler mathematical function to get a "tulip" shaped output. That is to say, given linear input, the output ramps logarithmically over the 1st quarter, then stabilises before ramping exponentially over the last quarter. This is vague, I know. I guess I'm looking for a reversed extreme cosine output; the following simple patch probably describes it better:
    Forgive please, I am not math speaker good.

      Man, I've been intending to put this up as a Toolbox entry for a while, and things got in the way.
      Here's a zip file containing gen~-based examples of all the standard easing functions. I hope they're of some help, Brendan.

      Pretty damn comprehensive Gregory, many thanks (wasn't there a similar thread request recently??)*. I look forward to playing with these.
