STRING ATTRIBUTES THROUGH STAMPING IN A FONT SOP

In this video I'm showing how  to get the Font SOP to type out values from a string attribute when you are using stamp. Maybe not the most exciting subject, but it can be quite useful.

If it's hard to read in the video, the expression I'm typing is the following:`points("../assemble1", stamp("../copy1", "pName",0), "name")`

    don't forget that you can stamp string attributes directly using Attribute Stamps parameter on CopySOP (see its tooltip for more details)
    just put your string attribute name(s) there and you can use then use stamps() function directly to get their value

    Great tip Mikael & tamte - thanks a lot. I was wondering about exactly this for a recent project and did it much, much, much more complicated with first generating all my words in the font sop to then group them by lines and separate them with code... This is about 1000 times faster :-)
    Cheers,
    Tom
