This node defines a collection of objectSet nodes which are mutually exclusive of each other with respect to membership. That is, no member of an objectSet which is in a partition will also be a member of another objectSet if that objectSet is also in the same partition. Partitions are created and edited using the "partition" command. Mutual exclusivity is enforced by both the "sets" and "partition" commands.

The "renderPartition" defines the collection of shading groups which define which objects should be rendered. If an object or part of an object is not in a shading group, it will not be rendered.

A partition can have an annotation which is a text string associated with the partition. It can be used to describe the purpose of the partition.
