Panel CHOP

Summary

The Panel CHOP reads Panel Values from Panel Components into CHOP channels. Panel values can also be accessed by using the panel Member of the PanelCOMP Class.

Parameters - Panel Page

Component component - The path of the Component being referenced.  

Select select - Specify which panel values to create channels for. Use * to select all panel values. Add individual values using the drop down menu on the right.  

Rename rename - Rename the panel value channels selected with the Select parameter here. For example, if "u v" are selected in the Select parameter, you can rename these channels to horizonal and vertical by entering "horizontal vertical".  

Queue Overlapping Events queue - Queue all events that occur in a time slice. Some panel values, such as wheel or key, switches between a value and 0 in the same time slice and are considered instantaneous. When this parameter is off, only the last value in the time slice will be used, and changes could be missed. Turning this on will keep as many events as possible based on queue size. Each queued item will be released in the next time slice until the queue is empty, and value changes within the same time slice are synchronized.  

Queue Size queuesize - Size of queue. If the number of events is larger than the queue size, earlier events will be discarded.  


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).
