## Description

The following snippet shows how to use noise for smoothly randomly moving objects, rotating them or animated light intensity.

## Usage

Download the package. Open Unity with your own project folder. Double click on the unityPackage in the finder. [PerlinNoise]

This installs the perlin noise class and 3 scripts implementing:

- Animated light intensity noise
- Animated noise position
- Animated noise rotation

To use one of the scripts, just drag them on a game object, to make them move, rotate, animate light based on noise.

## Another function
