Switch Operator In Fusion?
Posted 15 October 2011 - 04:44 AM
Going to talk about it and see if we can come up with something like that at work. This will be a good starting point, so thanks a lot Stefan. Hope to report back with good news and a working set of tools.
Result is a less cluttered flow, fewer nodes and happier compers.

You could add an expression to the switch slider and connect it to a checkbox somewhere else that is either 0 or 1. Via the User Controls script you could also create a multi button that is labled "left" and "right".
But if you only need two inputs to switch between, you could also use the Dissolve node and connect its slider to a checkbox. My Fuse, I think, doesn't support DoD yet, so the Dissolve tool will actually be faster in bigger comps.

That would only be true if the Dissolve tool supported DoD.

I find wireless tools making comps quite unreadable (same with the hidden image input of say a probe), then again, some comps turn into cobwebs that would even scare John Goodman

(insert image with dude and spikey hair) :-)
The hidden inputs wouldn't be so nasty if there was a warning if you are about to delete a node that is secretly needed somewhere else.

As for the tagging, i guess you would tie that the input of the tool (same as inputs are handled i guess, a tool doesn't save if it used or not, only what output from what tool it uses on what input)
Heck, instead of hidden pipes, how about semitransparent (or dark shaded) and dotted/dashed view options? Still visible, but not overly present (for Modifiers as well maybe?)

What I would like to see is a mode, like "Show Tile Picture", but rather "Show Hidden Connections". You could also have a flow option like "Force Active Show Hidden Connections" that would show for the active tool. You probably don't want to see all the connections all the time, just like you don't want to see all the tile pictures all the time.
This sounds cool! It reminds me, however, that from the dozens of options in the flow's context menu, I never change anything. It would be a godsend to be able to customize this menu: Mockup_contextmenu.png 16.29KB 23 downloads
