The docs for this function:

  • Vector2 cubicinterpolate( Vector2 b, Vector2 prea, Vector2 post_b, float t )

Cubicly interpolates between this Vector and “b”, using “prea” and
b” as handles, and returning the result at position “t”. “t”
should be a float of 0.0-1.0, a percentage of how far along the
interpolation is.

I'm not sure what to pass for pre_a and post_b.
There's not much on this on Google.

I think it has something to do with bezier curves. You know, you need 4 points to do a cubic interpolation. May be that are the 2 missing points. IDK, but i vote up your question because it would be nice to have explanation.

So I created a scene so you can test out the function with drag and drop.

Hi, as i commented, i was not sure, so i asked in IRC... this was the answer:

[15:17] p7f: prea and postb are handles, indeed similar
to those for a besier curve
[15:17] the result curve will be tangential to the pre_a - a line at a, I assume
[15:18] best way to choose them is to try with some values first, see what result it produces, then proceeding from there

bojidarbg: so it should be also tangencial to b - post_b?
[15:19] yeah, at b
[15:19] bojidar
bg: thanks a lot!

Is not my merit this answer, but i post so others can see anyway.
