Get Time tracks an effect’s time. Time in Seconds outputs the total time since the effect has started, while Delta Time outputs the time between frames. A frame is a single image of a camera video feed.
|Time in Seconds
|The time, in seconds, that has elapsed since the effect started.
|The time, in seconds, that has elapsed since the previous frame.
In this example, the Get Time node is used to produce a continuously changing value. Time in Seconds is fed into the Sin and Abs nodes to create a value constantly changing between 0 and 1.
