How to reference spare input inside VOP

Recommended Posts

Hi

I want to read a spare input inside a Volume VOP inside of a compiled block.

I know how to use them with wrangles by just reading input -1 but of course there's no OpInput-1 inside of a VOP...

I only want to use a VOP for ease of setting up noise - and for now I'll use a simple noise in a wrangle but presumably you can get at -1, -2 etc in VOPs too.

Thanks for reading

The only thing the OpInput parameters on the Global Parameter VOP are doing is passing on the "opinput:" string. So to get your spare parameter you just write "opinput:-1" on the parameter that expects the file name.

Ah great, thanks Dennis. I started making a parameter VOP to do that and then thought that couldn't be it! I'll give it a go.

Thanks for your input also Tesan.
