Function that maps a number (percentage, time, etc.) to a value


Function edition is a very important process to master. It is used in many aspects of Smode: animation (cues and timelines), parameters exposition, mesh generation and more.
A function relates an input and an output. Those can be anything (change a position in function of time, change a color in function of the depth in a 3D scene, etc.). Functions end up being at the heart of a lot of things in Smode.

Here is an introduction to each function type you'll find inside of Smode, go inside the specified topics of the documentation for further informations.
You have access to 5 types of functions (depending on the element on which you are) : Each of theses functions types will be covered during the next chapters :
