Since 14.5

The Visualize node sets up an export for the named attribute with a vis_ prefix. It also invokes the addvisualizer VEX command to add an attribute to the geometry to use this node’s visualizers.

Any Visualizers added to this VOP node (Via Gear Icon::Add Visualizer) will be applied to the resulting geometry, regardless of where in Houdini it is viewed.


The 'x' keyboard shortcut can be used to teleport the visualizer node between different VOP outputs while inspecting a scene.
