Houdini equivalent to this? Nov. 5, 2018, 3:55 p.m.

Nice tool.. thanks for the link… Time to do some R&D!

You have two approaches I think, one is to use a special external tool to account for the time spent on the package and you get a total value, or you could get callbacks on every single node when there are changes and build a massive log file impossible to decipher.

I am not sure what you are asking makes a lot of sense unless you involve yourself in classifying every step of the process, every node interaction and… well… I doubt it would be fun to work like that.

Andy is right, the best route is to parse the path attribute and you can group things, assign shaders to groups, add different subdivs based on name, adding cryptomattes…

I do it pretty much everything on 3 different VEX Wrangles so I group things, then attach new attributes to those groups and in the end I overwrite some old attribs as things are required.

I hope it helps
