When a 3D model is selected, the 3D Graph view allows you to view a list of the subnodes composing the 3D model, arranged in their hierarchy. You can select a subnode from the list. When a subnode is selected, you can manipulate it with the Transform tool, disable or enable it.
If your 3D model is connected to a Subnode Animation node, you can select this Subnode Animation node and use the 3D Graph view to select and animate a subnode, to add its properties to the Subnode Animation's properties in the Timeline view, or connect a subnode to a 3D Kinematic Output node to it so that its animation can be applied to another element.
Do one of the following:
- From the top menu, select Windows > 3D Graph.
- From any of the other views, click the Add View button and select 3D Graph.
|3D Graph menu||Access commands through this menu—see 3D Graph View Menu.|
|3D Graph toolbar||See 3D Graph View Toolbar.|
Lists the selected 3D model's subnodes in a tree hierarchy and allows you to select a subnode.
NOTE Subnodes preceded with a icon are transformation subnodes which are only used to affect the position, size and angle of its child subnodes. Subnodes preceded with a are geometry subnode, which actually contain a visible part of the 3D model.
|Selected subnode hierarchy and name||Displays the subnode's parent hierarchy followed by the subnode's name.|
|Search bar||Allows you to filter and search for subnodes. Typing anything in the field will make the subnode list only display subnodes that contain the typed text string in their name, along with their parents.|
