# Easing along, one step at a time

interpolation easing tweening

BounceEase was annoying me alot. I was trying to figure out how it worked, but I'm not very good with math and algorithm-thinking.

The original code looked like this:

And trying to figure out all the magic numbers, I eventually broke it down to this:

I never figured out how the '7.5625f' value was calculated, but the others are resolved. http://public.gamedev5.net//public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.png

Unfortunately, changing the value of 'bounciness' or 'bounces' produces poor results (probably from the constant!), so I didn't bother including the code with the rest of the equations.

I prefer to make the the whole thing template based - so I can interpolate floats, ints, doubles, vectors as well as quaternions (anything that has the + and  * operator overloaded And yeah, interpolators are awesome here's my code : http://ideone.com/RTEmf5

Good idea about the templates! I think I'll leave that for some future, though.
