    Hi guys, so I’ve created a scene whereby elements inside essentially “follow” the mouse. It works great, however is it possible to move the objects gently rather than it just immediately snapping and pointing to the mouse position? How do I apply velocity or acceleration to the movement action?

    Anyone got any pointers on this at all? :)

    No simple solution that I am aware of. If you are using puzzles only then you may want to create your own methods for setting the location of your object. Right now your set is immediately after the calculation so it will snap. Program a delay as a function over time and control the velocity. You will probably want to create a easing in and out function too.

    Not sure of the frequency you are currently polling your position but you can also try controlling movement yourself in puzzles vs using constraints.
