Render lops through pdg? 2020年1月20日5:10

Our clever folk got tractor and pdg working again (more firewall esoterica), I was keen to try rendering a lop graph on the farm with pdg.

How does one do this?

Couldn't see a lop fetch or karma top, trying a rop fetch that pointed to a karma lop errored. I assume I'm missing something obvious!

You can convert that 1 -> 0 -> -1 value that a dot product returns into a 0 90 180 degree value if you're so inclined.
