I'm not really that good at animation nodes, but want to know if it is possible to create a mesh or fill a plane between two edges. I was planning to make a trail using animation nodes, so I have this: https://gyazo.com/cffff87116688f8d92d0e946324243ba Nodes: https://gyazo.com/e9ddf6ee903c6d7abb62986ac1f4eace But I have fill the gaps. So I decided to fill those gaps even though they were separate objects, and the other objects are just created in AN loops. I've tried my best in explaining, tha

Assuming your vertices are in a typical order, you can use the polygon and edge indices from a grid mesh to construct you mesh as follows:

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for this, but where can I find "mesh object input" node. I'm just new at animation nodes :) Thanks for response (BTW i see you everywhere) $\endgroup$ – Worship Lyrics Jan 14 '19 at 13:59
  • $\begingroup$ @WorshipLyrics You are using a very old version of Animation Nodes. Try to upgrade to a newer version. $\endgroup$ – Omar Emara Jan 14 '19 at 14:00
  • $\begingroup$ can I have the blend file :) ? $\endgroup$ – Worship Lyrics Jan 14 '19 at 14:17
  • $\begingroup$ @WorshipLyrics Added blend file. $\endgroup$ – Omar Emara Jan 14 '19 at 14:22

    $\begingroup$ Loop over your objects, append their vertices locations to a vector list, apply the above node tree. It is fairly easy to do. $\endgroup$ – Omar Emara Jan 14 '19 at 14:40
