In CHOP

Summary

The In CHOP gets channels that are connected to one of the inputs of the component. For each In CHOP inside a component, there is one input connector added to the In CHOP's parent component.

Parameters - In Page

Label label - The label for this input on the COMP that will show up in a popup if the mouse is held over it.  

Num Channels numchannels - If On, and the number of incoming channels does not match this value, an error is generated.  

Names channames - When used with Num Channels the input is scanned for channels matching these names. All other channels are ignored and not passed through. This is a way of filtering out unnecessary channels without requiring a Select CHOP or Delete CHOP. When used without Num Channels the input channels are simply renamed according to this pattern.  


Parameters - Common Page

Time Slice timeslice - Turning this on forces the channels to be "Time Sliced". A Time Slice is the time between the last cook frame and the current cook frame.  

Scope scope - To determine which channels get affected, some CHOPs use a Scope string on the Common page.  

Sample Rate Match srselect - - Handle cases where multiple input CHOPs' sample rates are different. When Resampling occurs, the curves are interpolated according to the Interpolation Method Option, or "Linear" if the Interpolate Options are not available.

  • Resample At First Input's Rate first - Use rate of first input to resample others.
  • Resample At Maximum Rate max - Resample to the highest sample rate.
  • Resample At Minimum Rate min - Resample to the lowest sample rate.
  • Error If Rates Differ err - Doesn't accept conflicting sample rates.

Export Method exportmethod - - This will determine how to connect the CHOP channel to the parameter. Refer to the Export article for more information.

  • DAT Table by Index datindex - Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the index of the channel in the CHOP.
  • DAT Table by Name datname - Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the name of the channel in the CHOP.
  • Channel Name is Path:Parameter autoname - The channel is the full destination of where to export to, such has geo1/transform1:tx.

Export Root autoexportroot - This path points to the root node where all of the paths that exporting by Channel Name is Path:Parameter are relative to.  

Export Table exporttable - The DAT used to hold the export information when using the DAT Table Export Methods (See above).
