    Losing my Mind -or- How the last patch broke Trigonometry.

    I've used trig for many years, including in MMF and Fusion, but since the last patch I am getting really strange results from my trig functions.

    Calculating simple phases of a unit circle using the trig functions should return a full range of -1 to 1 when using 0-2Pi.

    Either Fusion is trying to do some shortcuts or the functions are broken. Can anyone help?

    I've attached an example, with calculated and hard-coded Pi phases. Can anyone confirm the behavior as being universal since the last patch?

    Thanks!

    Oh boy.

    So I just tried Sin(0 - 360) for fun and sure enough.

    Can I just go on record as saying that it's a little frustrating to have software override 2000 year old math functions to use degrees instead of radians? I am tempted to submit a big report. At the very least there should be an additional set of degree based trig functions while maintaining the traditional ones.

    I am starting to doubt it was patch related, now my mind is blown and I am wondering how many times I've been through this hahaha.
