Iterator (Group)

This node allows you to simulate program loops. A numeric value is increased by steps of 1 until a maximum value is reached. The value is then reduced to its minimum value and the loop begins once more. A complete loop is performed per animation frame.

The Iteration node is especially useful when editing a large number of points via a Point node. For example, you can connect the Iteration node’s output to the Point node’s Index port to edit multiple points in one step.

The Iteration Start and Iteration End input ports define the start value and the maximum value for the loop. The Iteration port outputs the numbers in the loop one after the other.

The On input port takes a Boole value that enables (True) or disables (False) the node. The node is enabled automatically if you do not add this port.

The Count port outputs the total number of iterations in the loop.
