SCNActionMBS class

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
class SceneKit MBS Mac64bit Plugin 19.1 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: A simple, reusable animation that changes attributes of any node you attach it to.
Notes:
You use actions most often to change the structure and content of the SCNNodeMBS object to which they are attached, but you can also use actions make other changes to the scene. In SceneKit, actions provide an easy way to implement animated behaviors that frequently change in response to user input.

Timing Modes

Constant Value Description
TimingModeEaseIn 1 Ease-in pacing. The animation begins slowly, and then speeds up as it progresses.
TimingModeEaseInEaseOut 3 Ease-in ease-out pacing. The animation begins slowly, accelerates through the middle of its duration, and then slows again before completing.
TimingModeEaseOut 2 Ease-out pacing. The animation begins quickly, and then slows as it completes.
TimingModeLinear 0 Linear pacing. The animation progresses evenly throughout its duration.
