Type Method


Creates an action that idles for a randomized period of time.


class func wait(duration sec: TimeInterval, withRange durationRange: TimeInterval) -> SCNAction



The average amount of time to wait.


The range of possible values for the duration.

Return Value

A new action object.


When the action executes, the action waits for the specified amount of time and then ends. This is typically used as part of a sequence of actions to insert a delay between two other actions. However, you might also use it in conjunction with the runAction(_:completionHandler:) method to trigger code that needs to run at a later time.

Each time the action is executed, the action computes a new random value for the duration. The duration may vary in either direction by up to half of the value of the durationRange parameter.

This action is not reversible; the reverse of this action is the same action.
