  1. So I have a scene that composites a bunch of meshes together. What I want to do is build a descriptive filename based on parameters I have set. For example if the mesh is male or female, what version of pants, or shirt is it using etc. I have a ROP with a two expressions in it. The 2nd expression `chs("switch_LEG_Manual/input")` seems to work fine because it is just concatenating a numeric value (0-5) based on a slider position. However trying to add the string prefix HMM, or HMF I'm not having luck. First I tried to use an IF statement, but could not replace the true, false values of 0 and 1 with strings. So I made some detail - string attributes with the prefixes, and then a switch node to pitch the appropriate prefix, but cannot seem to place that detail string attribute in my filename. Aslo tried a local variable $ATT without success. I have tried, $HIP/Clothes_Fitter_Output/LEG_output/`chs("GENDER/string1")`_LEG_Default.`chs("switch_LEG_Manual/input")`.obj - i get nothing.. _LEG_Default. $HIP/Clothes_Fitter_Output/LEG_output/`chsraw("GENDER/string1")`_LEG_Default.`chs("switch_LEG_Manual/input")`.obj - I get the $ATT local variable but not its actual value of (hmm or hmf) $HIP/Clothes_Fitter_Output/LEG_output/`details("../GENDER","GENDER",0)`_LEG_Default.`chs("switch_LEG_Manual/input")`.obj - Any ideas? or a better approach to making dynamic file names in a rop? Thanks.
  2. Hello, I need quick help. In shader I want to test if point is in certain group. There is In Group node but it takes input parameter Geometry file. In vopsop I could set it to op:/obj/path/to/object but what expression should I write there to set it to shaded object? Thanks.
