Hi all,
While watching this LA Users Group presentation on Solaris: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EDo6XkJk1g [www.youtube.com] , I noticed that Yuqing was able to just have a selection in his scene graph and drop down a Prune node which automatically filled the Primitive Pattern param.

Is this a custom hotkey or are there specific Solaris/lops keyboard shortcuts? I couldn't find a page that showed them. I find myself constantly having to fill similar params in other lop nodes and would be great if it just took my selection into account!

Hi Aylwin,

If you are in a Scene View/3D View and do TAB to add a Prune/Blast/.. node, then the UI will try to populate the new node with your selection. If you do the same in a Stage/Network panel you just get a new node. Maybe that's what you saw in the demo?

Cheers,

Ah yes, that's right, if I do it in the viewer it does try to populate it. I guess it doesn't work with every lop node with a primitive param though – i.e. Assign Material, Sop Modify doesn't pick it up. But thanks for this.

I will add though that Katana's ‘Add Scene Graph Selection / Append Scene Graph Selection /Remove Scene Graph Selection’ options in its parameters I think would be handy for these.
