Random Number


This node generates a random float between a minimum and a maximum value.



  • Node Seed - Aside from the Seed input, this extra seed parameter enables you to get different random numbers if the Seed input in not free, that is, it is dependent on some property that you can’t freely controle, for instance, when using multiple Random Number nodes in a loop while using the index as a seed, you can change the node seed to get different numbers for each node. Animation Nodes automatically changes the Node Seed when you duplicate or add a new Random Number node.
  • Create List - It is the button you see beside the Node Seed, if enabled, the output will be a list of random floats.


  • Seed - Seed for the random generator, Where different seed generate different random number.
  • Min - A float value that the generated number won’t deceed.
  • Max - A float value that the generated number won’t exceed.
  • Count - The number of random floats to generate. (Only available if Create List is enabled)


  • Number - A random float between the minimum and the maximum value.
