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.
See the Array Sources node to see how this node is used in the nodegraph to multi-instance child nodes.
Each transform channel (position, rotation, scale) can be:
- attached to a column of the table (in Table mode)
- step offset for each item
- be kept constant
|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 y-axis.|
|Rotation Pitch||Rotate the object about the x-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.
|CSV File||The table resource.|
|CSV Entries Per Transform||Used for 1D/Flat List setups, where you need to specify the number of CSV instances per transform instance|
|Apply Node Transforms To Array Elements Only||When Enabled, transform changes applied to this nodes transform properties will also be applied to the array elements, and carried onto any nodes this data is used.|
|Position Conversion|| Conversion type:
|Rotation Conversion|| Conversion type:
|Static Data – No Dynamic Updates||The array data is only processed once, not per frame.|
|Channel Source – Position/Rotation/Scale X/Y/Z||
|CSV Index – Position X/Y/Z|| Behavior depends on Table Layout:
|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:
|Name||Description||Typical Node Input|
|Transform Modifier||Links all transform properties to the input node.||Null|
|Target Node||Always faces the x-axis towards the inputs anchor point.||Null|
|Local Transform Override||Override the transformation values of the node, relative to its parent.||Null|
This node outputs a transform array – which may be used directly with a Clone To Transform Array, or to clone other nodes within Field or Particle systems.
