Sprint Planning

Jacques won’t attend Wednesday (15/Apr) meeting.

Goal: Curves and initial volume support in preparation to upcoming projects. Also leaving room to see if there are any pressing bugs reported as part of the Beta.

Note, other tasks were left for the module contributors to help, such as spreadsheet navtree.

Design Discussions

Week starting 2021-04-12



  • Present final Point/Vertex domain proposal (Dalai).
    • Accepted.
  • Proposal for active modifier visualization change (Hans)
    • The poposals are (arguably) an improvement but they are also far from ideal, so it’s hard to get excited about them.
    • We talk about it on thursday again.
  • 14:30 CEST Wrapping up attribute and texture painting design.


  • I/O and instancing (Dalai)
    • I want to present to the team the currently challenges Andy is facing when exporting Geometry Nodes to USD.
    • Not much a design section, but more food for thought.
  • Proposal for active modifier visualization change (Hans)
    • The extra icon in the header is far from ideal
    • A way to highlight the panel under the cursor could be a bit better


Week starting 2021-04-19



  • Spreadsheet
    • Single column lable for vec2, vec3 and color components (centralized).
    • This can be for 2.93.
    • Try using .x, .y, .z for row filtering.
  • 14:30 to 15:30: Use case Meetings for the modes HQ


  • Show warning in Attribute Transfer node?
    • Might be enough to not show any attributes in the source attribute name dropdown.
    • Always showing (and printing) a warning in the default state could be quite annoying.



Note: This will be updated throughout the next two weeks with the day to day design discussions.

Next planning meeting: 2021-04-26 at 14:00 CEST on geometry-nodes on blender.chat.
