  • Trigger a linear function between two values of a slider multiple times

    Hi! I’m trying to come up with a sollution that allows me to do the following:

    I have a slider controler, and I need to use it to trigger some properties. The problem I’m having is that I need to trigger an specific property between two values of the slider.

    For example

    src= slider;

    src between 4 and 8


    src between 9 and 20


    src between 21 and 28



    Right now I’m trying to use the switch operator, but I think i’m doing something wrong:




    (anim !=3 && anim!=4)



    case 0:

    (anim==3 && src>=3 && src<=7)



    case 1:

    (anim==3 && src>7)



    case 2:






    Is there a way to achieve that?

    Thanks in advance!

    It might be that you just need something like this:

    src = slider;
    if (src <= 8){
    x = linear(src,4,8,10,20);
    }else if (src < 21){
    x = 25;
    x = linear(src,21,28,110,120);

    but the fact that you’re using the word “trigger” makes me nervous…

    Thank you very much, Dan!

    I simply forgot about if/else hahahaha

    Don’t worry, you don’t need to get nervous lol.

    Everything is working fine now!
