SHOPs: op: reference to non-cached geo. possible?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

just a quick question: some SHOP nodes have a geometry input. like pcopen, intersect, etc. I'd like to point these inputs to the geo node existing in the scene rather than file on disk. Same thing like bringing in the COP result into the shader by typing `op: obj/copnet/OUT`. But it seems to be not working for geometries. Is it really necessary to cache out geo before using it in the shader or is there some trick to make it work like with COPs? If it is not possible, is there any good reason why? Caching things out can be a bit annoying part of the workflow sometimes.

thanks, D.

afaik, mantra can´t read referenced geometry so yes, you need to load it from disk.
