    Hi, I'm sorry for the beginner level post among people who really seem to know their stuff! I'm a complete noob, and would appreciate your support.

    Basically, I've got a document, very simple, just 1 cube, with a coffee Tag, in which I'm trying to tell the cube to move up until a certain point, and then when it reaches that height, it starts going down until a certain point. The problem is, I think that makes it an infinite loop because COFFEE is trying to do it all instantly. I'm looking for a way to instruct coffee only to evaluate and move the cube once per frame. Is there a way to do this or am I approaching the whole thing the wrong way?

    Thanks in advance, and please be patient with my inability to comprehend the language of which you are all masters.

    You need to write a delta time expression plugin. Please check the "Writing delta time plugins" chapter of the COFFEE documentation.

    cheers,

    I think it is notable to add that you should go for the R9.5 Documentation:
