Interpolate

Overview

The Interpolate Node.
The Interpolate Node calculates intermediate values between an initial and a target value over a set amount of time. It is particularly useful for animations.

Attributes

Inputs

Attribute
Type
Description
Data Type
Drop-down
The numerical data type which will be interpolated.
Duration (s)
Float
The length of time between the start and end of the interpolation, if it is not provided in the Duration (s) Socket.
Interval Time (s)
Float
How frequently the interpolated value is updated and the output Pulse is triggered.
From
Defined in the Data Type Attribute
The value at the start of the interpolation, if one is not provided in the From Socket.
To
Defined in the Data Type Attribute
The value at the end of the interpolation, if one is not provided in the To Socket.

Interpolation

Attribute
Type
Description
Type
Drop-down
Method used for calculating the intermediate values.
Mode
Drop-down
Whether the interpolation will be performed once, repeated or alternated.
Count
Int (not available for Mode Once)
The number of times that the interpolation will be performed, if it is not provided in the Count Socket.
Infinite
Bool
Whether the interpolation will be played indefinitely (this overrides the Count Attribute).

Pulse Output (►)
Pulse
A standard Output Pulse, to move onto the next Node along the Logic Branch, once this Node has finished its execution.
Instance ID

Value
Defined in the Data Type Attribute
The intermediate value calculated.
OnStart
Pulse
Pulse that gets triggered when the interpolation starts.
OnReset
Pulse
Pulse that gets triggered when the interpolation resets.
OnEnd
Pulse
Pulse that gets triggered when the interpolation ends.
