View Full Version : spot info>polygon side

Hey all.

I know the spot info node has been modified a little bit but I'm trying to find the spot info>polygon side part but can't seem to. Am I missing something?

LW 11.6 Build 2714 has either Spot Info with Polygon Side, and Input with Polygon Side outputs. At least in Surface Node Editor..
This is meaningless data in motion or displacement node editors.

They shuffled some things round in the Nodal interface, in 11.6. The spot node was replaced by the 'input' node, which is ever-present now. The info you want is there. However, I did ask LWG to re-add the spot node, for cases where you might need it (inside Compounds for example), so it has been put back in, and should be in the latest Beta build for 11.6. Try going to your download area.

doh! Thanks Tobian. You're totally right. I keep ignoring that Input node there. Thanks! And thanks for the update suggestion, that's a great idea. Thanks!
