Could you give an example of using `lerpVectors`?

Hi, I´m trying to move a object from left to right using lerp (like unity) but is not working as I expected:

    update(): void {
               const wp = getWorldPosition(this.gameObject);      
        this.gameObject.position.lerpVectors(this.gameObject.position,new Vector3(wp.x,wp.y,wp.z+5),1 )
        this.gameObject.position.lerpVectors(this.gameObject.position,new Vector3(wp.x,wp.y,wp.z-5),1 )

Hey :wave: in this case you can use .lerp istead of .lerpVectors, that can reduce the length of the code.

Mind that you are setting world position to your local position vector. Can you make sure that the values are correct?

If you’re always lerping with “1” as second parameter your object will jump there immediately.

You’ll most likely want something like this:

private targetPos = new Vector3(0,0,0);

onEnable() {
  getWorldPosition(this.gameObject, targetPos);
  targetPos.z -= 5;

update() {
  const wp = getWorldPosition(this.gameObject);
  wp.lerp(targetPos, this.context.time.deltaTime * 2);
  setWorldPosition(this.gameObject, wp);

getWorldPosition / setWorldPosition are a bit more convoluted than in Unity but otherwise it’s the same :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:
