Function: Creates an action that changes the opacity of the node to 1.0.
Notes:
duration: The duration, in seconds, of the animation.

Returns a new action object.

When the action executes, the node’s opacity property animates from its current value to 1.0.
This action is reversible; the reverse is created as if the following code had been executed:

SCNActionMBS.group(actions() as SCNActionMBS) as SCNActionMBS
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
shared method SceneKit MBS Mac64bit Plugin 19.1 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Creates an action that runs a collection of actions in parallel.
Notes:
actions: An array of SCNActionMBS objects.

Returns a new group action object.

When the action executes, the actions that make up the group all start immediately and run in parallel. The duration of the group action is the longest duration among the collection of actions. If an action in the group has a duration less than the group’s duration, the action completes and then idles until the group completes the remaining actions. This matters most when creating a repeating action that repeats a group.
This action is reversible; it creates a new group action that contains the reverse of each action specified in the group.

shared method SceneKit MBS Mac64bit Plugin 19.1 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Creates an action that hides a node.
Notes:
When the action executes, the node’s hidden property is set to true.

SCNActionMBS.javaScriptActionWithScript(script as string, duration as double) as SCNActionMBS
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
shared method SceneKit MBS Mac64bit Plugin 19.1 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: Creates an action that executes a JavaScript script periodically over a specified duration.
Notes:
script: A string containing JavaScript source code.
seconds: The duration of the action, in seconds.

SceneKit exposes its classes, methods, and functions in the JavaScript context that runs the script—see the SCNJavaScript.h header file for details.

When the action executes, SceneKit runs the script repeatedly until the action’s duration expires. Each time SceneKit runs the script, it computes the elapsed time since the action began executing (as a fraction of the action’s duration between 0.0 and 1.0) and makes it available to the script as a variable named elapsedTime. The script can also reference the SCNNode object running the action as a variable named node.
This action is not reversible; the reverse action executes the same script.

Notes:
delta: A vector that describes the change to be applied to the node’s position.
duration: The duration, in seconds, of the animation.

Returns a new action object.

When the action executes, the node’s position property animates from its current position to its new position.
This action is reversible; the reverse is created as if the following code had been executed:

dim reverseDelta as SCNVector3MBS = SCNVector3MBS.Vector(-delta.x, -delta.y, -delta.z)
SCNActionMBS.moveBy( reverseDelta, duration)

Subsequent actions in the sequence run in a similar fashion until all of the actions in the sequence have executed. The duration of the sequence action is the sum of the durations of the actions in the sequence.

This action is reversible; it creates a new sequence action that reverses the order of the actions. Each action in the reversed sequence is itself reversed.
