Hierarchy Operator

Basic Node Parameter

Hierarchy Operator

Paths enable you to access groups of objects at any position in the hierarchy. In this example, the Hierarchy node outputs the three Sphere objects.

This node first locates a position in an object hierarchy, as defined by a Reference Path and a Start Path. From this position in the hierarchy, the node then follows a repeatable Iteration Path and outputs all of the objects it meets as it travels along the iteration path. The node is controlled primarily in the Attribute Manager.

Object groups can be read out from anywhere in the object hierarchy by simply entering a corresponding path. In the example above three sphere objects will be searched for consecutively using the path defined and subsequently read out consecutively at the object output.
