Author Topic: Transformation2D Exposing parameter  (Read 57 times)

I'm following along basic course of Substance designer, [02-11 Exposing parameters on the twig subgraph]

As I click (Edit exposed graph input) of 'Transformation matrix' parameter, which is a box gizmo in 2D view,
It disappears.

in the course when instructor goes 'preview mode' in that root graph parameter, That gizmo appears but for me
it's gone forever.. :'(

Hello @Juwon Suh,

Thank you for reaching out to us!

This is not obvious, but displaying the transformation gizmo requires both the Transformation matrix and the Offset parameters to be exposed.

To be more specific: displaying the gizmo requires that there exists a couple of parameters which match the following criteria:
  • Both have the same base name
  • One is a Float4, with a Transformation editor, and has the matrix or matrix22 suffix appended to its base name
  • One is a Float2, with a Transform offset editor, and has the offset suffix appended to its base name
I have attached an example of this setup to this message.
You can then assign these parameters to the Transform matrix and Offset parameters of a Transformation 2D node, respectively.

I hope this is helpful!
