Groups for image node active camera

Unread postby janoshunyadi » Tue Mar 21, 2017 5:04 pm

Would be nice if image node's Active Camera slot would support groups. Maybe filter out the first camera that the group finds with rules and use that (If more than 1 found, could sort it alphabetically). Right now if the alembic cached camera changes (different names etc.) all of the image nodes cameras are dropped from the Active Cameras.

Hi Janos,

I really don't find this is a robust method. In many case you could end up with the wrong camera being selected (and unnoticed) which can lead to more severe problems than having to explicitly reset the camera.

Best,

You're suggest we should just write a script to re-link all the cameras?
