Filter empty nodes out of spread


#1

Hi,

Does anyone know of a way to filter the empty (textures for example) nodes out of a spread of nodes?

I have seen solutions for strings, and values etc. But is there a way for other types of nodes?

For example if you would have a spread containing 5 textures, maybe created via a Cons node, but texture 3 wouldn’t contain a texture (or pin 3 of the Cons node wouldn’t be connected), you would somehow return a spread of 4 textures, leaving out the empty 3rd texture.

thx

i don’t know if Info (EX9.Texture) is able to output spreads.
but in case it can you could check for width=0 or similar and use GetSlice (Node) to filter…

Never noticed empty textures count in the spreadcount, thnx for this.

I attached a patch that should fix this, it indeed use the Info Node. Just be carefull, if you have no textures at all, you end up with an empty (or NILL) spread.
