This node represents the handle by which a cluster's transformations can be manipulated. It is primarily just a way of selecting the cluster in the scene, though it also stores the transformation information needed for the cluster's deformation.

Long name (short name)TypeDefaultFlags
clusterTransforms (x) compoundn/aarrayoutputconnectable
Bundled transformation matrices for the cluster deformation.
preWeightedMatrixTransform (pre) matrixidentityoutputconnectable
Represents the transformation in the DAG above the weighted node.
weightedMatrixTransform (wt) matrixidentityoutputconnectable
The transformation of the weighted node.
postWeightedMatrixTransform (post) matrixidentityoutputconnectable
Represents the transformation in the DAG below the weighted node.
origin (or) double3outputinputconnectablestorable
The location in local space of the displayed 'C' icon.
originX (ox) distance (double)0.0cmoutputinputconnectablestorable
X position of the displayed 'C' icon.
originY (oy) distance (double)0.0cmoutputinputconnectablestorable
Y position of the displayed 'C' icon.
originZ (oz) distance (double)0.0cmoutputinputconnectablestorable
Z position of the displayed 'C' icon.
weightedNode (wn) Messagen/ainputconnectable
This attribute is connected to the weighted node (ie. the one to which the cluster percentages are applied), if one was specified. Otherwise, the transform node above this node is the one to which the percentages are applied.
