A wish - Multiple outputs and Attributes in macros
« on: May 21, 2024, 04:39:30 PM »
Hi there,

I have bumped into the need of having macros to spit out multiple outputs mesh as well as numeric.

Sometimes you have a model generated in the macro, which you of course want put out  - and at the same time some mumeric or boolean values, also generated inside the macro that you want put out at the same time. Macros can currently, to my knowledge, only output one thing, either an object or a value. That is sometimes too narrow. Even when we talk about numeric outputs only, it could be cool with more output than one, fx. a conditional output, where each condition was an attribute - and even better when combined with an object output.

I am currently sitting with a setup that probably  can be solved with a snake farm of connections, - but could be SO much more elegant with one or more attribute outputs.

Is that a possibility in near future?   (please please, pretty please)

Hi Lars,

Due to the current design, only one output node can be used per macro, and there is no way to bypass this limitation at present. We will look into this further for future versions, as it requires more in-depth investigation by our main developers. Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
