Description
-----------
Calculates a vector between two vectors at a specific increment. The two vectors must have the same dimension. The ``amt`` parameter is the amount to interpolate between the two values where 0.0 equal to the first point, 0.1 is very near the first point, 0.5 is half-way in between, etc. If the ``amt`` parameter is greater than 1.0 or less than 0.0, the interpolated vector will be outside of the range specified by the two vectors.
This method is similar to :doc:`sketch_lerp` and :doc:`sketch_lerp_color`, but for vectors instead of numbers or colors.
Signatures
----------
.. code:: python
lerp(
other: Union[Py5Vector, np.ndarray], # other vector to interpolate between
amt: Union[float, np.ndarray], # float between 0.0 and 1.0
) -> Union[Py5Vector, np.ndarray[np.floating]]
