How to remove a specific slice? (Updated: Mouse Cursor goes haywire after deleting slices)

Hello,

I would like to find out how do i remove slices from two linear spreads? I understand that there’s the deleteslices node but am unsure of how to go about using it and where to connect it to?

I’ve attached my patch as a reference.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thank you!

in the patch attached you don’t make it clear where exactly you’d want to remove a slice.

Hello joreg,

Apologies. I’d like to remove the slices that are numbered as follows:

510
511
512
513
514
469
470
471
472
473
428
429
430
431
432
388
389
390
391
392
346
347
348
349
350
305
306
307
308
309

Thanks!

well, but where do you want to remove them?
i can only assume that you want to put a DeleteSlice (Transform) between the Transform and the Quad. right?

yes thats right and thats what i did! I somehow managed to remove them! thank you! but now my mouse cursor goes haywire.

do you know how i can resolve this?

well, you removed the slices only from the spread that goes into the Quad, but not from the spread that goes into the Button, see?

yes i connected the output of the deleteslice to the button and now it works! thank you!
