Is there a way to animate instance points on a curve in geometry nodes? I am thinking of something similar to the follow path constraint, with an easy offset value to manipulate. I have a curve object on which I want the instanced objects to slide along. The offset between the instanced objects should stay constant.nodetree-screenshot

Edit: Also it would be cool if the sliding would loop on the curve.

  • $\begingroup$ I found "Equal" in the compare node. As a second question it also would be cool if the sliding would loop, do you know a way to do this? :) $\endgroup$
