Point Expression use $PT ?

Recommended Posts


i have a simple question, i am using a sort node with "Proximity to Point" and i want to ignore the Y Axis, therefore i am trying to fetch the Y-Position of the processed Point to my "pointproxy" parameter of the sort node.


point("../wrangleNode", ???, "P", 1)

As $PT is not available how would i do this?

You could manually calculate the proximity, ignoring the Y axis, and store the value into an attribute beforehand, then just sort by that attribute. You could also store your Y value as an attribute, set it to 0, sort by proximity, then restore the Y position later.
