[quote="deadeye":1366myzv][quote="Psmith":1366myzv]What or Who is Lerp?[/quote:1366myzv]
It stands for "linear interpolation," and it's a very useful and powerful math function. I had no clue what the hell it was when I first started to use Construct, but once it was explained to me (see David's post above) it made complicated stuff a lot easier. I know you're adverse to the whole coding side of things, but lerp() is a really good one to know.
In my opinion, everyone should make friends with lerp() and clamp(), which is also so useful it's sickening. There's a list of system math expressions here on the wiki:http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/c ... xpressions
Lerp() and clamp() are under the math section.[/quote:1366myzv]
Is there a thread or post anywhere that gives practical
examples of what expressions like that can be used for? For the mathematically challenged or those who suffer from Dyscalculia (such as myself) Lerp gives an inbetween number and that's it. Would be nice to see examples of possible real world uses for that and other expressions, such as "Lerp could be used for X, Y, Z among other things", just to get the old brain working. Be a handy thing to reference for new users too.
