<FileNode> Properties

Properties are as follows:

Property Documentation
Folder Resolution: NoneDo not resolve the file path set by this node.
Folder Resolution: Application Binaries PathResolve the file path set by this node relative to the application binaries directory.
Folder Resolution: Application Data PathResolve the file path set by this node relative to the application data directory.
Folder Resolution: Application Documents PathResolve the file path set by this node relative to the application documents directory.
Folder Resolution: Current Document PathResolve the file path set by this node relative to the document that contains this <FileNode>.
Folder Resolution: Application Scripts PathResolve the file path set by this node relative to the application scripts path.
Folder Resolution: User Scripts PathResolve the file path set by this node relative to the user scripts path.
File Extension FilterSpecifies the file extension associated with this <FileNode>. This value is used by commands that operate on this node.
Base DirectorySpecify a different path to resolve the file path set by this node.
File PathSets the path to the file referenced by the <FileNode>.

<Group> Properties

Properties are as follows:

Property Documentation
VisibleToggles the <Group>'s visible/invisible". Child nodes are not visible when their parent <Group>'s is invisible.
CollisionsToggles collision detection on the <Group> node and its children". This is used for runtime export and has no effect in Scenome applications.
CullToggles view volume culling on/off". modifying this parameter may cause incorrect culling and other unexpected consequences.
Preserve CameraThis option is undocumented at present.
Generic Data SourceThis option provides the capability to connect a <Group>'s to a node that serves as a generic data source.
Bounding Box FrozenFreezes the bounding box at its current size. This is often used as a runtime flag, and modifying this parameter may cause incorrect culling.
Minimum XDisplays the minimum bounding box coordinate on the X axis.
Minimum YDisplays the minimum bounding box coordinate on the Y axis.
Minimum ZDisplays the minimum bounding box coordinate on the Z axis.
Maximum XDisplays the maximum bounding box coordinate on the X axis.
Maximum YDisplays the maximum bounding box coordinate on the Y axis.
Maximum ZDisplays the maximum bounding box coordinate on the Z axis.
Transform LockedLocks the node and prevents transformation of the node and its children. This is a runtime flag and has no effect in Scenome applications.
Position XDisplays the node's position on the X axis.
Position YDisplays the node's position on the Y axis.
Position ZDisplays the node's position on the Z axis.
Orientation XDisplays the node's orientation on the X axis.
Orientation YDisplays the node's orientation on the Y axis.
Orientation ZDisplays the node's orientation on the Z axis.
Scale XDisplays the node's scale on the X axis.
Scale YDisplays the node's scale on the Y axis.
Scale ZDisplays the node's scale on the Z axis.
BillboardSets the node as a billboard. Billboards rotate to face the camera. This feature has been preserved for compatibility purposes, but this functionality should be implemented with geometry shaders.

<Node> Properties

Properties are as follows:

Property Documentation
NameSets the name of the node. Do not use / or \ [forward slash and backslash] in the node name as this produces conflicts with resolving link nodes that reference external files.
ClassSets the class of the node.
IDSets the ID of the node. This must be unique for each document, but different documents can use the same ID.
Export DisabledDetermines whether or not the node is exported during an export process, or possibly other purposes.
GuidEnumerates the Node's GUID.
