Run over parameter - Attribute Wrangle

Recommended Posts

Hi, can someone please explain to me, why we would set the run over parameter in a wrangle node to detail or points? What is the difference between these two? I know that run over points means that the vex code is run over each point in parallel, but what exactly is run over details?

Thank you

Run Over Detail allows you to run VEX code in a serial manner. Not all algorithms can be parallellized so it helps with those cases.

Back in the day, when there was only VOPSOP, I used to achieve this by running VEX code on a single point, where I queried the actual geometry from the second input.

You can also use it for other things like creating detail attributes, which only exist for the entire geometry, rather than per element, etc.
