Author Topic: [SOLVED] Undo exposed parameters  (Read 1169 times)

Hi,

How can I undo a parameter that has been exposed and keep the value? The only way I found to undo an exposed parameter is to reset it to the default value and delete the exposed parameter from input parameters, but obviously, this doesn't keep the value.

Ultimately, I want to learn how to copy nodes from one graph to another and not have to go through the painful process of deleting all the values that were exposed.

Thanks

Hello C3rr3,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to retain the current value of an exposed parameter when resetting a parameter.

Since you mention copying and pasting nodes across several graphs, have you considered using node instances?
You can create a graph that carries the functionality that you need, and plug this node into your other graphs as required.  Just drag and drop a graph into another one!
Additionally, if you need to copy and paste parameters, you are able to import and export presets.

In the example below, a simple node floods the material with water, with some exposed parameters:


The 'LG Water Flood' graph. Several parameters have been exposed.


The 'LG Water Flood' node in use.

We hope this is helpful. Feel free to get back to us if you need further assistance.
