Hi, I am Peter Ostry, I am new in this forum and new to Max. Please excuse me if my questions are "common knowledge".
I am looking for the best way to let a slider run
- from 0-90 and stop
- or from 90-0 and stop
- with adjustable speed
- following several selectable exponential curves
I looked into the "bline" object and it seems to do what I want. I can load different lists to control the curve and the direction. But I am a bit unsure if I chose the right technique. I don't need ultrasmooth operation but writing the lists is rather tedious. And I need a couple of them and one set for for each direction. Is there another way to create exponential curves?
I think there must be a formula but I don't know which one (I am lousy in maths) nor do I know how and in which object to use it. If someone knows a trick for easy creation of exponential curves, I appreciate any suggestion or hints where to look in the Max manual.
