Since 20.0
This feature is still under development. The current functionality is unfinished and subject to change, and may have thin or no documentation. Please bear this in mind when using it.

This node performs a procedural layout of an APEX graph in the APEX network view by rearranging the graph nodes into a regular spacing pattern.


Offset Group

The pattern that identifies the nodes in the APEX graph to lay out.

Output Group Name

When turned on, creates a point group of the modified APEX nodes.


Offsets the affected nodes after they are laid out. Positive x offsets move the nodes toward the right. Positive y offsets move the nodes upward.


Scales the affected nodes after they are laid out. Positive scale values move the nodes upward and to the right with increased spacing. The scaling is applied to the laid-out nodes before the offset is applied.



An APEX graph.
