Graph: Create Scene simulation folders

This graph helps to order your sims in folders related to your name scene.

To use it , plug it in the SimulationPre folder in the Simulation Flow Panel.

It has a little problem in the updating cache process, so it is possible when you open the scene next time you will need to execute the graph clicking on the “Execute Graph” button before update the cache in order refresh the global variable with the name of the scene.

This graph is similar to the old  script IDOC Subcversion script.

Graph: Convert rpc files into bin files

This graph converts a given rpc sequence into bin file sequence.


You only need to set the paths for sequence.

String_01: Rpc file path sequence.

String_02: Bin file path sequence.

This graph can be executed in an empty scene.

How to animate no animatables attributes with graphs.

There are some attributes in RealFlow that cannot be animate, for instance, all the ones start with a @blablabla.

You can create a py script or use some graphs nodes in conjunction with py code.

This graph is really simple, it use a null object in the scene to transfer the animated channels to the non animatables channels or attributes from other nodes in the scene.


This is a workaround for the SetParameterNode that is not working properly in the actual version.

This graph should be pluged to the FramePre o StepPre folders in the Simulation Flow panel. For setting the inputs you need to select the “Edit Graph input parameters” button and a dialogue box appear to set the nodes and params.


This is the animation curve will be applied to the non animatable attribute.


Thanks to NextLimit Team for the help.
