Converts between different types of groups. When converting groups, you can use wildcards to convert several groups that match the specified pattern. For more information about the pattern substitution rules, please see Attrib String Edit.
The geometry on which to create the groups.
Number of Promotions
The number of group promotions rules to apply. Promotions are applied in sequence, so if a group was promoted by an earlier rule and matches a later rule, it may be re-promoted.
Enables this rule.
Source group type.
Newly created group type.
Group to convert.
The new name of the converted group. Leave this empty to keep the name of the original group.
Keep Original Group
Do not remove the original group type.
Include Only Elements Entirely Contained in Original Group
This option allows only primitives that have all of their points or edges in the original point group to be included in the resulting primitive group, when converting from a point group or an edge group to a primitive group.
The same thing applies when converting from a point group or a primitive group to an edge group. Only edges with both points in the original point group will be added to the new group.
When converting from an edge group to a vertex group, this causes only the vertices at the beginning of each edge be included. In other words, each vertex is associated only with outgoing edges when this option is enabled.
Convert to Integer Attribute
When enabled and the To type is Points, Primitives, or Vertices, this converts the output group to an integer attribute with values 0 (not in the group) and 1 (in the group) and then deletes the group.
