Hi all

While creating some motion-graphics I stumbled upon the probe modifier. Want to share my unusual approach with you all.

Damn! This probe baby really rocks!

What is it doing? Looks like it finds the highest peeks.?

Exactly. It will find the highest value and translate the 2d coordinates into 3d fusion space.

I love probe too, but what I don't like is the implementation as a modifier. When you are trying to evaluate more than one parameter from an image, it's less efficient than it would be as a tool. It also is much harder to cache and manage in a comp. The usefulness of the tool is very good though.

I agree, it would be nice to have the probe as a stand alone node. Or maybe as a new tab inside the custom tool.
