Mouse Picker

Mouse Picker

Detects mouse pressed events and outputs its position.

Method #

This node detects a mouse pressed event and outputs the position of the mouse in either world space or local space.

Mouse picker only works in Builder and in Standalone executables. It does not function in media servers, as media servers capture all mouse functions.


These properties control the core behaviours of the node.
