Constant Random Number


Recommended Posts

I need to generate a random integer based on a user data integer.

I only want the random number to change when the user data changes.

Can anyone advise the best way to go about setting this up?

 

Thanks,

Tom

Is this happening during animation ? If so, you could use a memory node to compare current value to value on previous frame and unfreeze the random number if different.

the data change should be step

freeze2.c4d

Thanks Jed this is a very clear and useful example that i'm sure i'll go back to a lot.

 

Much appreciated.

Or use the python node: 

import c4d
import random
#Welcome to the world of Python


def main():
    global Output1
    random.seed(Input1)
    Output1 = random.random() * 100

Create the python node, copy&paste this code, delete Input2 and feed the User Data into Input1. Output1 will give you a random number between 0 and 100 (in this case).
