Can these 2 nodes, someway, talk each other? Or a sub-program is only an end stage?

1 2

I still have to fully understand the dynamic behind these cool sub-programs..

Is maybe necessary creating something that stand "on the middle"? like a script by the sub-program, don't know....


I'm trying to automate the position of the scotch according to the position of the picture's vertices, the way I've done yet with the pictures and the picture's paper to the vertices of a grid :)

I just miss the scotch.. I searching a way to use the vertices by the looping sub-program...

A little difficult to explain, I know ^^"

e.thing red after linking..


the 2 subprograms I'm trying to connect. I need the position of those vertexes..

when linking

  • $\begingroup$ subprograms can have outputs that you can plug into the next subprogram. I'm not sure what you want to archieve here.. $\endgroup$ – Jacques Lucke Mar 31 '16 at 18:58
  • $\begingroup$ It gives back errors when doing that.. a sub-program can't link to another sub-program, as it says in the animation node tree's tool (T) menù once these have been linked.. $\endgroup$ – Francesco Yoshi Gobbo Mar 31 '16 at 19:09

    $\begingroup$ Two subprograms can't be in one network, that is true. But you can invoke a subprogram from another subprogram. Hard to explain now. Could maybe explain what you want to archieve? $\endgroup$ – Jacques Lucke Mar 31 '16 at 19:25

    $\begingroup$ hm not sure if I can help you with the project here on stackexchange.. sorry. Maybe you should ask this in the Animation Nodes thread on BlenderArtists. The question is a bit too unspecifc to answer it in a single post.. $\endgroup$ – Jacques Lucke Mar 31 '16 at 20:48

    $\begingroup$ Look at Looch's solar system animation tutorial. I'm thinking that perhaps you could use a group and use the Group Input and Invoke Subprogram on the group as a way to feed stuff across different animation nodes networks. See my query about this in the on blenderartists forums AN thread. lollypopman.com/2016/04/02/tutorial-an-solar-system $\endgroup$ – lumpynose Apr 6 '16 at 6:35
