Slice info

Hi, anyone knows how to retrieve index from a slice among a whole spread? I need to “filter” slices greater than a value and read its index. I think I need to use Interval (Spread) but still studying it.

Thanx,

Alecz

isnt that just a combination of > (greater than) node and a select node? the select node should return you the former slice!

Yes but I need to retrieve coordinates from an Arbitrary Point (Transform) and the number of slices (in input) is not the same for each dimension… It’s maybe a stoopid question but I can hardly understand how slices are organized in such nodes

when you know e.g. the x.coordinate you could use get slice to get the same slice from the y and z outlet?!?

this is depending on the connected renderobject.
see User Tutorials.
you find there an ArbitraryPoint Tutorial i once patched.

Thanx for the link Kalle. My object is a simple Grid (EX9 Geometry); I just need to track movements of a point from the arbitrary point node.

Here is my patch.

Thank you very much tonfilm! it is so simple… Things will be clearer now.

Cheers vvvvolks!
