This node takes in file input(s) or a LOP Node and attaches attributes to them based on what data the user wants to be fetched. The node accepts file outputs from upstream TOPs, a custom file path, or a LOP Node. The data retrieved includes some or all of the following:
Various counts such as total # of prims, # of models, # of instanced models, etc.
A list of dependencies grouped by layers, unresolved paths, and other.
A list of external references grouped by references to sublayers, payloads, and other.
Determines when this node will generate work items. You should generally leave this set to “Automatic” unless you know the node requires a specific generation mode, or that the work items need to be generated dynamically.
All Upstream Items are Generated
This node will generate work items once all of the input nodes have generated their work items.
All Upstream Items are Cooked
This node will generate work items once all of the input nodes have cooked their work items.
Each Upstream Item is Cooked
This node will generate work items each time a work item in an input node is cooked.
The generation mode is selected based on the generation mode of the input nodes. If any of the input nodes are generating work items when their inputs cook, this node will be set to Each Upstream Item is Cooked. Otherwise, it will be set to All Upstream Items are Generated.
The input the node reads to fetch data from.
Determines the source of the file or LOP node. Any type of file can be used as input but only attributes relevant to that file type will be added to the work item.
Custom File Path
Uses the file specified by the custom file path.
Upstream Output File
Uses the output file produced by the upstream work item as the path to the file.
Reads the composed stage from the specified LOP node.
The data tag that identifies the result from the upstream work item.
This parameter is only available when File Source is set to Upstream Output File.
The path to the file to be read.
This parameter is only available when File Source is set to Custom File Path.
The path to the LOP node from which to read the composed stage.
This parameter is only available when File Source is set to LOP Node.
The time at which to analyze the scene.
Determines how attribute keyframe values from the input stage are interpolated.
Work Item Frame
Uses the frame on the generated work item.
Uses the given time in seconds.
Uses the Houdini playbar time.
Specify the number of seconds to use when the Evaluation Time is set to Custom Time.
The stats to retrieve from the scene.
Get Stage Stats
When on, computes various counts such as total # of prims, # of models, # of instanced models, etc. and adds each count as an attribute to each work item. Counts that are not applicable (such as # of instanced prims when no instancing is used) may not be added.
When on, adds three attributes to each work item: a list of layer dependencies, unresolved paths, and other dependencies. This option is only available when File Source is not Lop Node.
Get External References
When on, adds three attributes to each work item: a list of external sublayer references, payload references, and other references. This option is only available when File Source is not Lop Node.
