Since the Last Meeting

General Discussion

Patch Review & Decision Time

  • Node Editor: Controlled node link swapping
    • Making this more explicit would be good, generally seems like an improvement.
    • The downside is taking away one of the available modifier keys.
    • Artist input would be helpful.
    • This patch uses the same modifier key: Nodes: Allow skipping node attachment after dragging
  • Node Editor: Icon number indicator for data-blocks
    • Will help with node group assets.
    • Show the node group ID template in the “Group” tab of the sidebar in a no-header panel.
    • Should we get rid of the ID template in node groups completely?
      • We do this already for node groups that come as assets.
      • Maybe. You always want to rename a node group after creating it, and we might not want to force everyone to the sidebar. So maybe there could be a popup for choosing the name.
  • Selection output for the subdivide node(s)
    • With a selection of “old edges” it would be possible to retrieve everything else.

Follow Up

  • Hans can make a design task for the subdivide node selection output.

Next Meeting

The next meeting will be on Tuesday November 1, 15:00-16 CEST (Your local time: 2022-11-01T14:00:00Z), which is 2 weeks from this meeting. The provisional meeting agenda will be linked in the #geometry-nodes channel before the meeting.


Do you consider creating logos for certain important nodes in the future?
