Smooth with Inertia (vuo.motion.smooth.inertia)

Smoothly transitions from one position to another.

If the target changes before the position has reached the previous target, this node maintains a continuous velocity (unlike the Smooth with Duration node).

This node always takes the same amount of time to reach the target, regardless of the distance between the current position and the target position. (See also the Smooth with Rate node.)

Starting when an event hits this node’s Set Target input port, each time the Time input port receives an event, the Position port outputs the smoothed position, until it comes to rest.
