I don't like the result of the smooth interpolation: the linear interpolation gives straight lines and the cosine interpolation gives funny squares. Anyone came up with whatever else solution that brings a better result on the generated perlin? As I understand it, it should simply be a parabolic LERP, no?

I’ve always used the following polynomial for interpolation (the same presented in the paper “Improving noise” by Perlin): 6t5 - 15t4 + 10t3

Thanks to you, I discovered that I have been living under a rock for couple of years as I had never heard of improved noise before! Thanks for pointing this out.

Took me a while but I got it working as I wanted. I found some old VB6 source code and managed it.

And screenie to show that it does work:
