This node reads a USD file or LOP node and creates work items based on search criteria. The search is done on the composed stage of the specified input USD or LOP.
The name of the primitive.
The full path to the primitive.
Work Item Generation
Whether this node generates static or dynamic work items. You should generally leave this set to "Automatic" unless you know the node’s work items can be computed statically, or that they need to be generated dynamically.
This node always creates dynamic work items: it waits until the upstream work items are known, and generates new work items from the upstream work items.
This node always creates static work items: it creates the number of work items it thinks it needs based on the parameters (and any upstream static items) before the network runs.
If the input is static (a static processor, or a partitioner with only static inputs, or a mapper), this node generates static work items, otherwise it generates dynamic work items.
The input the node reads to create the work items.
Determines the source of the USD file or LOP node.
Custom File Path
Uses the USD 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 USD file.
Reads the composed stage from the specified LOP node.
This parameter is only available when USD is set to Upstream Output File.
The data tag that identifies the result from the upstream work item.
This parameter is only available when USD is set to Custom File Path.
The path to the USD file to be read.
This parameter is only available when USD is set to LOP Node.
The path to the LOP node from which to read the composed stage.
The search criteria the node uses to create the work items.
The Primitive Matching Pattern to apply to the specified input stage.
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.
Strip Layers Preceding Layer Break
This parameter is only applicable when the input is a LOP node.
When on, any layers preceding a Layer Break LOP node connected directly or indirectly to the requested LOP node will be stripped from the USD stage before importing the stage.
When on, the specified string attribute is added to the primitive path.
When on, the specified string attribute is added to the primitive name.
Extract USD attributes that match the given attribute pattern.
:type syntax is not supported.
