vops translation Oct. 5, 2018, 8:16 p.m.

I'm trying to convert this renderman shading language code to VOP. This is only one line of code so far;

color baseColor= color (0.56,0.6,0.41); float baseColorFreq = 2; float label = 0.5;
/* Transform P from "current" to "shader" */ point Pshad = transform("shader", P) * baseColorFreq + label;

And this is my translation to VOP, except there is no color applied to, in this case a grid; which only renders white ?

Why am I getting a warning that attribute name, is unused or recognized with the connect adjacent pieces sop; when there is a name attribute coming into the adjacent pieces sop node ?
