    Hi,
    i am new and try to understand the logic. When i run this on position property:

    a = [100, 500];
    b= [1000, 500];
    AB = linear(time, 0, 3, a, b);
    BA = linear(time, 3, 6, b, a);

    or
    a = [100, 500];
    b= [1000, 500];
    BA = linear(time, 3, 6, b, a);
    AB = linear(time, 0, 3, a, b);

    its always second “linear” command works. Why?
    thanks in advance!

    It always puts in the last variable defined. You’ll need an if-statement telling the expression when to activate which variable.

    a = [100, 500];
    b= [1000, 500];
    AB = linear(time, 0, 3, a, b);
    BA = linear(time, 3, 6, b, a);

    if (time<3) {AB} else {BA};

    ah ok, fixed with < symbol, i see what you mean. thanks for reply.

    i am thinking about loop my solid between A – B, without keys/markers and loop command… is it possible?

    If(time <3){AB} else {BA};
