Node Graph Pins
As workflows become more complex, users need to create ever increasingly complex templates. These complex templates can span hundreds, if not thousands of nodes which leads users to start to run into a dilemma. The question to this dilemma is “How do you organize your node networks to ensure that all of the nodes are in the proper order so that all of the relevant information transcends the node graph, while still making all of the relevant parameters easy to access.
One solution to this, is to link these relevant parameters to a node that controls all of the parameters. However, this workflow can be tedious, and is prone to errors if a node is moved in the network, or renamed, etc. Node Graph Pins mitigates this problem by creating a convenient location in the form of a tab for users to store any node or parameter. This allows them the freedom to create the networks they need to ensure proper data flow, while still having easy access to all of the different locations that they deem relevant.
