Animation nodes took a while to get the hang of it, but it is truly amazing. I've been following the example below, but rather than modify an existing action, I'd like to assign a random action to each of the duplicated armatures. The scene currently has 5 actions (ArmatureAction.000, ArmatureAction.001, ArmatureAction.002 etc.)

I just can't work out how to firstly assign an action to an object using AN, and secondly how to randomly assign one of the 5 actions to each of the armature duplicates.

Yes you can do it. But the main problem with your node setup is that your using the second Object Attribute Output in wrong way. You haven´t passed any value to node. Therefore no paremeter can be assigned.

  • $\begingroup$ OK, can you tell me how to do it please? Here is the NodeTree that instances the object, and the armatures and connects them together. But I can't work out the syntax to place a different Action on the NLA track in each of the instances. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean that I have to put in a New Parameter in the Loop Input node? $\endgroup$
