(SOLVED)Extracting and merging points back to the same point number.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi Everybody,

I have a tool where I am extracting certain selected points (in this case agents) and timeshifting them then merging them back in. To keep continuity with the rest of the tree I need them to assume their original point number. My original solution involved attribute copy but sadly this method does'nt appear to work when it comes to agents as the clip times are'nt driven by any attribute and can't be copied over. I would appreciate any suggestions for this problem.

I assume you could assign some kind of "id" attribute before you extract the points. And after you merge them back you could apply a "sort" node, using sort by attribute with your previously created "id" attribute. Hope it works ;)

Thank you! Can't believe I didn't even think of checking that node.
