Node List View for trueSpace7.61

layers icon

Plugin and script that provides a window similar to the Scene view, but with more options and automatic alphabetization. It displays a list of all the items in the scene. If the Object Information script is installed it will update automatically from the rsx plugin.

You can open a Link Editor view, select and delete items like the Scene view, but you can also filter the list by type of object, create navigation bookmarks and copy the full path of a node to the windows clipboard.

node list window statistics

Load the rsx plugin via the plugin panel - Clintons3dRsView.rsx

Load the installer into the link editor to install the scripts.

A new rsobj file, "NodeGraphUtilities.RsObj" will be added to the "Objects - Base" library and a button will be created. Click the new button to open the view.

Usage:

  • The listbox has an unusual selection method. To select an item you left click then right click. For multiple selections drag or use combinations of shift and ctrl.
  • For multiple selections drag or use combinations of shift and ctrl followed by a right click
  • The root level dropdown list holds bookmarks. "__Scene" is the scene level and "__Root" is the top level in truespace.
  • The Set Root button is used to add a bookmark and set the root level to that bookmark.
  • The Misc, Geometry, Light ... checkboxes act as filters. If it's not checked then it won't show in the list.
    • Misc is a catch all for items that don't fit into the other filter categories.
    • The Visible and Invisible filters only work for One Level lists.
    • To get a list of invisible objects, check One Level and uncheck Visible and check Invisible.
  • The One Level checkbox will display only one level of nodes at the current root level. When unchecked it will display all the child nodes and their descendants
  • Delete to delete the selection
  • Open LE button to open the link editor to a node
  • Copy Path button will copy the full path of the selected node to the windows clipboard.
  • Select button will select the scene items based on the chosen items from the list. Right click in the list after making the choice will also select the nodes.

Notes:

  • automatically updates the Object Statistics node
  • Do not use the Active checkbox when used with the Object Statistics node. It's not needed and it interferes with the undo system.
  • to remove a bookmark select the node and press the Set Root button
  • Note that the rsx plugin may require the VC++ runtime 2008 from Microsoft.
  • For developers - the source code can be downloaded Clintons3d_View.zip. It is based on the RsView sample from the SDK.
