Visual information can be helpful when it comes to material creation in Substance Designer, but more veteran users may or may not want it cluttering up the graph view. Because of this we have the ability to include node input and output names, the resolution of every node in the graph. and even the calculation time of each node all enabled via the information drop down.
- [Voiceover] If you have already been using…the Substance Designer 5.3.4 update…a few of you may have already noticed…that we now have the ability to control…the level of information that is displayed…inside the Graph View window.…The choices we make here will perhaps to some extent…depend on just how familiar with Substance Designer we are.…So for instance if I zoom into the nodes…in one of our frames here you will notice…that I currently have Substance Designer set up to display…no information about the individual nodes at all,…although if I hover my mouse over the body of the node…I can view it's output resolution…and get and use it's description…and if I hover over either the inputs or outputs,…I get a very brief functionality tip.…
Notice also that the estimated calculation time for the node…is nowhere to be seen at this moment in time.…The question we want to answer then is…where the controls are editing the information levels…seen in the Graph View can be found.…If we come to our little i for information icon here…
