    So im making a 2.5D Shmup close to Sine Mora Ex style.
    The problem i have is that i need the player ship to be inside a "Fishtank", and move "freely" inside it, while the fishtank moves towards its goal.
    The fishtank is moving with a waypoint script
    Code (CSharp):
    1.     transform.position += transform.forward * speed * Time.deltaTime;
    in FixedUpdate. without a rigidbody.
    The player is a child to that Fishtank, and has a rigidbody setup, with Interpolate on.
    Its moving with :
    Code (CSharp):
    1.     private void FixedUpdate()
    2.     {      
    3.         movement.y = upDownInput * movementSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
    4.         movement.z = leftRightInput * movementSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
    5.         rb.velocity = new Vector3(0, movement.y, movement.z);
    6.     }
    The camera is fixed to the Fishtank at the moment.

    The problem is that the Player Object and Objects coming into the game view jitters.
    Its like a force is pushing them and gets tired and the object stops, and then starts pushing again, and stops.
    This happends about 2- 4 times every second.
    All i want is a smooth movement of the objects inside the camera view.

    How would i achieve that?

    Ill gladly answer any questions.
