Cinema 4D Prime XPresso XPresso Nodes Iterator (Group) Iterate Operator
Function available in CINEMA 4D Prime, Visualize, Broadcast, Studio & BodyPaint 3D
Iterate Operator

Basic Node Parameter


Iteration Start [-2147483648..2147483647]
Iteration End [-2147483648..2147483647]

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.


This Node can be activated individually via the On input port. The Node will only be active if set to 1 (true). If the port is not referenced, the Node will be active by default.

Previous Iterator

Several Iteration Nodes can be combined via the Input port. Subordinate Iteration Nodes will be looped each time before the numeric value is increased by 1.

Iteration [-2147483648..2147483647]

The current value will lie between both extremes at the iteration output port. A complete count will be made from beginning to end for each XPresso pass.

Count [-2147483648..2147483647]

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

Previous Iterator

The iteration of the outer node can also be looped using the Previous Iterator output port.

You cannot make XGroups repeat using Iteration nodes. You can form nested loops by connecting several Iteration nodes together via their Previous Iterator ports.
