The Animation Nodes (AN) addon is a node based visual scripting system designed for motion graphics in Blender.
The main goal of this project is to have a very customizable and extendable node framework. You can use it as powerful driver alternative, text manipulator, animation replicator, …
Leon Cheung created a spreadsheetthat helps to directly jump to the quality posts in this Thread.
AN has a manual. Also checkout the external links for more learning resources.
You can ask questions about AN on blender.stackexchange.com using the ‘animation-nodes’ tag. If the answer to you question does not fit into one answer you can also ask it here in the forum or on Github.
The development is mainly done by me (Jacques Lucke) but there a a few more developers who contributed code to the project. Most discussions about future development are on Github, everyone is invited to join us there.
