node [objects]
percent is undoable, queryable, and NOT editable.
This command sets percent values on members of a weighted node such as
a cluster or a jointCluster. With no flags specified the command sets
the percent value for selected components of the specified node to the
specified percent value. A dropoff from the specified percent value to
0 can be specifed from a point, plane or curve using a dropoff
distance around that shape. The percent value can also be added or
multiplied with existing percent values of the node components.
None
In query mode, return type is based on queried flag.

Argument types 
Properties 
value(v)

float



The percent value to be applied. The default is 1. In query mode,
returns an array of doubles corresponding to the weights of the
selected object components.


dropoffPosition(dp)

linear linear linear



Specifies the point around which to dropoff the percent value.


dropoffAxis(dax)

linear linear linear



Specifies the axis along which to dropoff the percent value,
starting from the dropoffPosition.


dropoffCurve(dc)

string



Specifies the curve around which to dropoff the percent value.


dropoffDistance(dds)

linear



Specifies the dropoff distance from the point, plane or curve
that was specified using the dp dax or dc flags.


dropoffType(dt)

string



Specifies the type of dropoff. Used in conjunction with
the dp, dax or dc flags. Default is linear.
Valid values are: linear, sine, exponential, linearSquared, none.


addPercent(ap)




Add the percent value specified with the v flag to the existing percent values


multiplyPercent(mp)




Multiply the percent value specified with the v flag with existing percent values
