Hi how how can i check within a particle system to see if a particleSamplerInfo node exists.
Once ive checked i wanna get its name and delete it.

does this help you

string $psi[] = `ls -type particleSamplerInfo`;
print $psi;

this will list all particle sampler info nodes in the scene. one you do that. you can then check connects to decide if its connected to your particle shape. then delete

thanks bud, if i have the particle shape selected, is it possible to find out from that instead of getting all the samplers in the scene and tracing it that way?

lol correct me if I am wrong here:

string $psi[] = `ls -sl -type particleSamplerInfo`;
print $psi;

the "-sl" flag is what is currently selected
