I'm using blender-2.81a with the animation nodes add-on (V2.1.6) .

The animation nodes documentation says that in order to change loop values while iterating I need to use the Reassignment Operator node but I can't seem to find it anywhere ....


can someone please point me in the right direction ?

This is not a node you can directly invoke with the SHIFT + A submenu. Here is how to do it :

  • Create your loop and click it to select it
  • Assign a parameter
  • Go to the right-side panel (shortcut N, or click on the arrow on the right side of the animation nodes node tree)
  • Go to the "Node" subpanel
  • Click on the "Reassign" button next to the parameter socket
  • Click in the node tree window where you want to place the "reassign" node

enter image description here

If you want to have the "Condition" boolean operator in the node, you should :

  • Select the "Reassign" node
  • Go to the "Item" subpanel on the right
  • Turn on the computer screen icon next to the "Condition" input socket.

This works for all the animation nodes which may have hidden input/output sockets
