C++ [MAYA API] MItDependencyGraph won't iterate properly

Recommended Posts

I have a function that takes in an MObject and is supposed to iterate its children and print any nodes it comes across using MItDependencyGraph:
 

void QueueChildrenTransforms(MObject& node)
{
	MItDependencyGraph it
	(
		node, 
		MFn::kInvalid, 
		MItDependencyGraph::kDownstream, 
		MItDependencyGraph::kBreadthFirst, 
		MItDependencyGraph::kNodeLevel
	);

	MString s = "Found: ";
	for (; !it.isDone(); it.next())
	{
		MFnDagNode child(it.currentItem());
		s += child.name();
		s += " ";
	}
	MGlobal::displayInfo(s);
}


When it is called, it only outputs the name of the node passed in to it. (If i use kInvalid as filter, which should iterate all nodes)

It doesn't seem to make a difference changing the direction or traversal priority.

I've tried different filteres as well such as kTransform and kMesh (these are the ones I want in the end, but using these filter seem to not output even the node passed in)

I'm not sure if im using the correct type of iterator for this but this is the only one I've found that lets you define the root node of the search, which I need to do.
 

So what am I missing here?


End goal is to pass in a transform node, and iterate through its children in order to queue any transforms found for export.

Solved it by doing the following:

	MItDag it(MItDag::kDepthFirst, MFn::kTransform);
	it.reset(node, MItDag::kDepthFirst, MFn::kTransform);

though I am still curious as to why the original approach didn't work..

      Hi all
      this is my first post on this forum.
      First of all i want to say you that i've searched many posts on this forum about this specific argument, without success, so i write another one....
      Im a beginner.
      I want use GPU geometry clipmaps algorithm to visualize virtual inifinte terrains. 
      I already tried to use vertex texture fetch with a single sampler2D with success.
       
      Readed many papers about the argument and all speak about the fact that EVERY level of a geometry clipmap, has its own texture. What means this exactly? i have to 
      upload on graphic card a sampler2DArray?
      With a single sampler2D is conceptually simple. Creating a vbo and ibo on cpu (the vbo contains only the positions on X-Z plane, not the heights)
      and upload on GPU the texture containing the elevations. In vertex shader i sample, for every vertex, the relative height to te uv coordinate.
      But i can't imagine how can i reproduce various 2d footprint for every level of the clipmap. The only way i can imagine is follow:
      Upload the finer texture on GPU (entire heightmap). Create on CPU, and for each level of clipmap, the 2D footprints of entire clipmap.
      So in CPU i create all clipmap levels in terms of X-Z plane. In vertex shader sampling these values is simple using vertex texture fetch.
      So, how can i to sample a sampler2DArray in vertex shader, instead of upload a sampler2D of entire clipmap?
       
       
      Sorry for my VERY bad english, i hope i have been clear.

      Hello. I am developing a civ 6 clone set in space and I have a few issues. I am using Lua for the logic and UI of the game and c++ directx 12 for the graphics. I need a way to send information between Lua and c++ occasionally and was wondering what is the best and most flexible (and hopefully fast) way to do this. Don't forget that I also need to send things from c++ back to Lua. I know of a lua extension called "LuaBridge" on github but it is a little old and I am worried that it will not work with directx 12. Has anybody done something similar and knows a good method of sending data back and forth? I am aware that Lua is used more and more in the industry and surely plenty of AAA game programmers know the answer to this. I want a good solution that will hopefully still be viable code in a couple of years...

      Hi there.
      I'm pretty new to this and I don't know if it has been asked before, but here I go.
      I'm developing a game using SFML and C++.
      I would like to use the "Tiled" tool to load maps into my game but I don't actually find any tutorial or guide on how to exaclty use it (I know that I have to read an XML file and stuff). I just step into diverse projects that make all a mess. 
      Anyone knows where can I find good information to make my map loader by myself?
      Thanks in advantage!!

      Hello guys,
      I've released my game for the first time. I'm very excited about it and I hope you'll enjoy the game - Beer Ranger. It's a retro-like puzzle-platfromer which makes you think a lot or die trying. You have a squad of skilled dwarfs with special powers and your goal is tasty beer. There is a lot of traps as well as many solutions how to endure them - it is up to your choice how to complete the level! 
      Link to the project: Project site
      Link to the Steam site with video: Beer Ranger
      Have fun and please write feedback if you feel up to.

      So I wrote a programming language called C-Lesh to program games for my game maker Platformisis. It is a scripting language which tiles into the JavaScript game engine via a memory mapper using memory mapped I/O. Currently, I am porting the language as a standalone interpreter to be able to run on the PC and possibly other devices excluding the phone. The interpreter is being written in C++ so for those of you who are C++ fans you can see the different components implemented. Some background of the language and how to program in C-Lesh can be found here:

      As I program this thing I will post code from different components and explain.
