For example, you may have a layer quickly scale up from zero to 100 percent and you want to add a little overshoot and oscillation and have it finally settle in at 100 percent. Another example would be if you have an object falling into frame and you want it to bounce a little when it hits bottom.

Here's the code: freq = 1.0; //oscillations per second amplitude = 50; decay = 0; //no decay amplitude*Math.sin(freq*time*2*Math.PI)/Math.exp(decay*time) Our "amplitude" parameter is set to 50, so the rotation of the pendulum varies from -50 degrees to +50 degrees and our "freq" parameter is set to 1.
