Aligning and Organizing a Node System

The Node View comes with three scripts allowing you to quickly organize and align nodes in a node system:

  • Order Node View Up and Order Node View Down can organize a node system made of several parent nodes connected to one child node—such as layers connected to a composite—into an upward arc, a node layout typically used for traditional or paperless animation scenes with few nodes. It should however not be used for complex cut-out rigs.

  • Align Nodes Horizontally can arrange a selection of one or several rows of nodes into a grid. It can also organize the parent nodes if they form a simple, clean tree-like structure. It is not made to organize entire rigs, but it can quickly organize parts of a rig so as to make the organization of an entire rig easier.
