My model consists of a for loop, where the original raster is hillshaded from different angles. I want to combine the resulting images to a single multiband image.
What I already tried was to put the loop results together with Collect Values and then merge them with Composite bands tool. I found that it is possible to use result of Collect values as an input of Composite bands, but Collect values returns just one value, regardless of how many iterations there are, so the final output raster's bands are all the same. This is definitely not what I want.
Now I do it without any loop, but having eighteen or even more same tools in one model is not very elegant. If it was possible to do this with a loop (especially in the model builder), I'd like to know how.
EDIT: after Composite Bands, I run Principal Components, and the result is quite fine. I can do other analyses too (in other models), but I don't want to drop the model with Principal Components. While maintaining it, I don't like that my model looks like this:
My question is: how to replace the column of hillshade tools and output with a loop? Is it possible within Model Builder?
