Using a mathematical function in graph editor?


is it possible to use a mathematical function for a graph? Let’s say i want my mesh object to follow an exact Lissajous curve or a damped oscillation, how could I do that?


Yes, by using F-curve modifiers. Select your F-curve then press N on keyboard to open the properties panel:

This example shows the built-in sine function. The Generator option allows definition of a custom function like the damped sine.
