Node Dummy

A dummy node is a zero-sized node that has no visual representation. It is used to organize the other nodes into a hierarchy. Usually the dummy node serves as a parent node for a group of nodes of the same type. The dummy node, though invisible, has the same common options as other nodes: it can be transformed (moved, rotated or scaled) and have a property assigned.

The dummy node differs from the dummy object: you cannot assign physical properties to the dummy node.

Place a Dummy Node

The dummy node is created automatically when grouping the nodes by pressing Ctrl+G (or by clicking Edit -> Group selected on the Menu bar).

Organizing Nodes Hierarchy

To organize nodes in a hierarchy, in the Nodes panel, hold Alt and drag necessary nodes into the dummy node in order to make them the child nodes.
