Nodes and Node References

Nodes and node references are fundamental objects that form the world:

  •  Node is any object with the .node extension that is present in the world (whether visible or not) and specifically positioned and oriented.
  •  Node Reference is a reference to the external .node file that can be used as a reference to other objects.

Base Nodes

Base nodes are not present in the world visually and perform the following actions:

  •  Dummy Node basically serves as a parent to organize other node into a hierarchy.
  •  Layer serves as a parent for other nodes and along with this nodes can be saved into a separate .node file.
  •  Pivot creates a new pivot point for its children nodes.
  •  Trigger fires callbacks when it is enabled/disabled or its position has been changed.
