SEGMENT-EDITOR : Segment-Parameters

The  Segment Parameters  separator shows with many (not ALL) Traditional Motion-Laws.

The Segment-Parameters, when they show, are unique to the Motion-Law.

The best way to learn about the Segment-Parameters is to experiment.

Segment-Parameters of the Since-Constant-Cosine Motion-Law

Segment-Parameters of the Since-Constant-Cosine Motion-Law

The image above shows the three Segment-Parameters for the Sine-Constant-Cosine motion-law.

In this case, you can edit the Segment-Parameters to give different Motion-Laws that are based on different fractions of the Segment-Parameters.

For example, Commercial Indexers with a Modified Sine-Constant-Cosine motion. The Constant refers to a period of ZERO-Acceleration, to give Constant-Velocity.

A family of commercial indexers may include, within the index-period, a Constant-Velocity of 20%, 33%, 50%, or 66%  of an Indexing Motion Segment.

In MotionDesigner, you can specify any percentage of Constant Velocity.

NOTE: The Constant-Fraction parameter above, refers to the Non-Zero Constant Acceleration, and not the Zero Constant-Acceleration.
