Currently I'm directly affecting the velocity of the points I like to 
animate, (basically feeding the difference between the cur pos and the 
target position, limited by the length of the distance so avoid 
overshoot, to v) in a SOP Solver and this seems to do the trick as a 
proof of concept.

Though I'm still curious if anyone can enlighten me on the 
pintoanimation subject.

Nick, be Nimble
