2021-05-17 Geometry Nodes sub-Module Meeting

Attending: Dalai Felinto, Hans Goudey, Jacques Lucke, Pablo Vazquez, Simon Thommes.

Agenda and notes for upcoming meeting at 14:00 CEST on blender.chat. Interested developers and artists are welcome to join.



  • Confirm priorities for the next sprint
    • Wrap up previous week targets (curve, material, attribute list).
    • Viewer Node.
    • Attribute processor.

Design Discussions

  • Selection workflow discussion
    • New attribute for the nodes (new_edge, …)
      • Reserved name, not a “real column” (cannot be removed?).
      • Nodes can (should) clear and re-populate those columns.
    • Explicit pipeline is better.
    • Nodes that could use the input:
      • Any nodes with a Geometry input except:
        [Join Geometry, Attribute nodes (if attribute processor), Separate/Combine XYZ (?)]
    • “Material Mask” vs. “Select by Material”

Next planning meeting: 2021-05-24 at 14:00 CEST on geometry-nodes on blender.chat.
