Making Good Sliders
The following articles are more of a how to make good sliders. They is achieved by using images and explains why it works. If you want to see a list of slider techniques, please redirect yourself to Slider Techniques.
There is a growing epidemic of horrible, horrible sliders which make me want to commit suicide over seeing them again, so I am making this to help improve the quality of your curves.
All of these sliders use Bezier Curves - any Catmull slider can be improved with beziers, true story.
Wise words from wise peoples
always align slider endpoints to the smallest possible value - that is, if you drag them any further backwards, the slider will shorten. the point will center itself in the slider end and will make attaining passable curves much easier to accomplish.
Also, doing this makes reverse selection on sliders not fuck them up. Which is a good thing.
