View Full Version : character nodes
12-01-2003, 04:16 AM
Is there any difference between a character setor a subcharacter set? If not, is there any way I can `ls` to find out if it is a root node?
I'm just looking for a list of the root character nodes in the scene.

I think you can check if it a root character node by querying the parent (listRelatives)if the returned array is size zero, than it is a root character node, otherwise a subcharacter.
Maybe there is a smarter way but this should also work
Basically there is no difference. Character sets hold either keyed attributes or other character sets. They're all top level plugs, which probably means they'll all return 0 parents, though I haven't tested it.
listConnections -type character characterPartition; will return all the top level sets.
