  • Jacques Luckes
  • Joshua Kanode
  • Lukas Tonne
  • Octave Crespel
  • William Knowles-Kellett

Since the Last Meeting

  • Performance
  • Initial operator nodes design

General Discussion

  • Nodes & Physics Workshop
    • Node operator design
      • Real-case examples
      • Consider to support only Selection
      • Design should account for more inputs
    • Attribute editing use cases
    • Simulation Nodes
      • 3.6 MVP
      • 3.6 quality of life
    • Real-time physics
      • MVP UI/scope
      • Specially in regards to cache/playback/reset/pause
      • Plan of action
    • Cancel geometry-nodes execution
      • What to show in the Viewport
      • How to resume the execution
    • Simulation region name
      • e.g., “Simulation Region”, “Loop Region”
    • Attribute editing design
    • Lukas onboarding
    • Tasks for this week
      • Simulation Disk Cache Format #105251
      • Edge domain attribute overlay

Patch Review & Decision Time

  • Design pitch:
    • Multi-input socket (William)
      • Math nodes could also benefit from this (e.g., Add, Multiply)
      • The math node will change at some point, so not a good initial target

Sprint Planning

  • See Workshop topics

Call for Action

Next Meeting

The next meeting will be on Tuesday March 21, 15:00-16 CET (Your local time: 2023-03-21T14:00:00Z ), which is 2 weeks from this meeting. The provisional meeting agenda will be linked in the #nodes-physics-module channel before the meeting.


Still has “upcoming” status… :thinking:
