I have a scene where I want to put few Dust Explosions, but Of course they would look better if they would start on diferent times. So I`m using DOP i/o and then TimeShift node just frame number minus random frames. ($F-24 for example)

Problem is that on frame number 10 it is 10-24=-14 and the mantra gives me error and doesn`t render anything.

What would be the best way to do it then?

Thank you

Use 'File' node instead of Dop I/O.

Select 'No geometry' under Missing Frame parameter.

you can as well use Clamp function of Timeshift , to clamp frames to your sequence range

max($F,1)

 

that'll evaluate to $F or 1, whichever is higher.

...I tried Clamp function, but I don`t really get it :(

just set Clamp to desired mode, like Clamp To Both if you want to hold both start and end frame

then set your Start/End Frames to the first and last frame of your input sequence, so if your sim is 1-50 then enter 1 and 50

it will hold frame 1 for any frame <1 and hold frame 50 for any frame >50
