Smoothing out incoming positional data

Hello, I have a project where i am receiving some incoming positional data from an automation controller. The positions are transmitted every 1second and i am trying to smooth out the movement in the best way possible.
Ive achieved something close using the Newton node and the Current position and next position difference to vary the accelerations, it works quite well but does not feel right.

Can anyone suggest a better way of doing this?

Cheers

There’s DeNiro (Animation) - read this https://discourse.vvvv.org/t/8688.
Just to mention: Delay (Animation), Decay (Animation); mapping values is useful in some scenarios.

Hi h99, thanks for that, what a good explanation. Looks like I’m on the right road after all.

Cheers

also usually the first choice for such things would be a Damper (Animation) with a large FilterTime.
