Binds

This type of node is used to specify more objects that can use this material in addition to the main object type defined in the node argument of the BaseMaterial. To add a new type of object for the material, you must bind your new custom node to the original node this material is already binded to.

The syntax is the following:

ULON
Bind from_node_name = to_node_name <defines=”SOME_UNIQUE_DEFINE”>

Usage Examples#

ULON
BaseMaterial material_name <node=ObjectMeshStatic> // the material is set to be used only for ObjectMeshStatic nodes
{
        Bind ObjectMeshStatic = ObjectMeshDynamic // set this material to be used by ObjectMeshDynamic as well
        Bind ObjectMeshStatic = ObjectMeshSkinned <defines="SKINNED"> // also set this material to be used by ObjectMeshSkinned with an additional define for shaders
        Bind ObjectMeshStatic = ObjectMeshCluster <defines="USE_CLUTTER_CLUSTER_PARAMETERS">
        Bind ObjectMeshStatic = ObjectMeshClutter <defines="USE_CLUTTER_CLUSTER_PARAMETERS">
        Bind ObjectMeshStatic = ObjectMeshSplineCluster <defines="USE_CLUTTER_CLUSTER_PARAMETERS,SPLINE"> // compile material’s shaders with two additional defines
}

We have added five more types of nodes to be supported by this material, some with additional defines. The corresponding defines will be used to compile shaders for the particular node type. For instance, the material’s shader for ObjectMeshSkinned will be compiled with the SKINNED define enabled.

Arguments#

defines#

Definitions separated by a comma without any space. You can also specify your own custom defines:

ULON
Bind main_node = new_node <defines=”SOME_UNIQUE_DEFINE”>
