Has anyone else encountered a problem where the identified period of a loop is not the actual looping point? I have been scratching my head over this for a few days and gotten to the point where I think the stiffness value is having something done to it before it is fed into the equation. I have already worked back to the equation that generates the displayed period (which I then found in a forum post)..
Leaving other variables at 1 for simplicity, I'm finding that changing the stiffness value results in loops as below:
Stiffness Period Actual Period
0.5 5 ~15 (give or take a few ticks)
1 10 30
2 20 ~32
3 30 ~39
4 40 50
5 50 ~58
6 60 ~68
And so on. I've found there is a decreasing value which approaches 1 as the stiffness value increases. But that's about where my ability to pull this apart ends. The difference factor I have found does plot a pretty neat curve [3, 1.6666, 1.3333, 1.25, 1.17, 1.141667], but I can't quite bring it into something I can use to predict the actual period.
If there's any suggestions out there, I'm all ears. (incidentally, GrowFX version: 1.9.9 sp2)
