Is there a way to display the point id of an object in Layout without doing the clothfx trick? Is there a plug-in out there?

Thanks.

Can you point me in the right direction? The motion node just affects the motion of the object and not the display like a geometry plug-in right?

I already have objects using the motion node and point info node to attach to the points of an object. But I'd like to be able to see the point id of the parent object so I could specify where my child is going without having to scroll through the ids in clothfx or getting the info in modeler.

Custom object, just shows point number. Might not be in the same order as ID... Didnt find a way to print out ID directly..

edit renamed to ShowPointIndex from ShowPointID :)
