Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Are you tired of using workarounds to position nodes accurately because you lose the selection and display when you select the node to position? Then the Node Positioner and Grabber, an easy-to-use script is just what you need because it lets you keep Daz Studio selections and settings while positioning completely different nodes.

This script set contains one main script with embedded features and three partially extracted features as standalone versions. For convenient use, many tooltips on buttons and checkboxes guide you through the script.

The main script offers the following options that are very convenient to use:

Full control over the visible viewports while the script is running
Reapply a camera to a view
Scanning complex scenes for nodes with specific characteristics type, name, and label (also similar ones), SSS- or Emissive materials
Editor to manage your favorite search names the list is stored outside Daz Studio and can be reused in any scene
Align nodes to each other at 27 points of the world space bounding or oriented box
Timeline support for all features great for animations
Saving script settings in the scene (manually or automatically) or removing them saved for comfortable working and cleaned up for sub-scene creation, for example

For even easier use, 3 functions are partially extracted and available as standalone scripts
