Method

This reads an array of transforms from a table resource. The array is used to instance the child subtree of the node – so the subtree / children are re-rendered for every transform in the array. The number of elements in the array will match the number of rows (Table) or items (Flat list) in the table.

Each transform channel (pos, rot, scale) can be:

  • attached to a column of the table (in Table mode)
  • step offset for each item
  • be kept constant

Nodegraph

Transform

Name Description
Position X Move its position along the x-axis in local space.
Position Y Move its position along the y-axis in local space.
Position Z Move its position along the z-axis in local space.
Rotation Heading Rotate the object about the x-axis.
Rotation Pitch Rotate the object about the y-axis.
Rotation Bank Rotate the object about the z-axis.
Scale X Scale along the x-axis.
Scale Y Scale along the y-axis.
Scale Z Scale along the z-axis.

Inherit Transform Channels

Toggle which transform channels should be inherited. By default, all are on.

Attributes

Name Description
CSV File The table resource.
Table Layout
  • Flat List: A row of separated values.
  • Table – Row per point: The more traditional 2D table layout
CSV Entries Per Transform Used for 1D/Flat List setups, where you need to specify the number of CSV instances per transform instance

Channel Data

Name Description
Channel Source – Position/Rotation/Scale X/Y/Z
  • CSV Data : Read the value from the table
  • Constant: Set all the values for this attribute as a single constant value
  • Stepped: Step the position by the Channel Offset for each entry
CSV Index – Position X/Y/Z Behavior depends on Table Layout:
  • Table: The column that holds the data (First column = 0)
  • Flat List: The index of the item in the separated values (First item = 0)
Channel Offset – Position X/Y/Z Offsets by the given amount (regardless of CSV Data, Constant, Stepped)
Channel Scale – Position X/Y/Z Behavior depends on Channel Source:
  • CSV Data: Scales the table value by this amount
  • Constant: No effect
  • Stepped: Step increases the value for every instance by this value

Inputs
