I'd like see Brownian motion function added to collection of available noises (Perlin and Simplex) in Make Gradient Noise node.

Brownian motion seems organic, I find it looking better than Perlin/Simples for moving objects on x, y, z axes.

So you want to move objects in paths like this, right? (source: Sullivan.t.j,

That would not be very difficult, but I think it would be a separate node from Make Gradient Noise since it's a different kind of noise and probably needs different inputs.

I've attached a rough simulation of Brownian motion in 1 dimension if you want to use it before this feature request is implemented.

Yes, that's the function. I

Yes, that's the function. I've checked your examples, thanks. I'm looking for more smooth outputs. In TouchDesigner implementation there's "number of integrals" parameter, when I set it to 2 I'm getting a nice fluid moves, that are giving the most natural look for things likes camera position.

When we (Team Vuo) plan each release, we try to implement as many of the community's top-voted feature requests as we have time for.

If anyone would like to help this happen sooner, we're also accepting open source contributions and commissioned work.
