Detailed Description

The IMaterialState graph node interface.

Material state nodes are used to activate and/or quickly switch between materials during scene graph traversal. As soon as a specific material is activated at a given slot via a material state node, it stays active during traversal until a different material state node using the same slot is encountered.

Use the base interface's IStateSlot::SetSlot() method to set the actual slot index the referenced material should be attached to.

See Output-States, Slots und Units for an overview of state handling during scene graph traversal.
See Graph::IMaterial for defining a specific material for rendering.

Member Function Documentation

◆ GetNodeInterface() [1/2]

virtual INode* Murl::Graph::IMaterialState::GetNodeInterface ( )
pure virtual

Get the mutable Graph::INode interface.

This method returns a mutable pointer to the node's Graph::INode interface, to be able to query or modify common node properties such as active state, visibility or ID.

Returns
The mutable Graph::INode interface, or null if not available

◆ GetNodeInterface() [2/2]

virtual const INode* Murl::Graph::IMaterialState::GetNodeInterface ( ) const
pure virtual

Get the constant Graph::INode interface.

This method returns a constant pointer to the node's Graph::INode interface, to be able to query common node properties such as active state, visibility or ID.

Returns
The constant Graph::INode interface, or null if not available

◆ GetMaterialNodeTarget() [1/2]

virtual IMaterialNodeTarget* Murl::Graph::IMaterialState::GetMaterialNodeTarget ( )
pure virtual

Get the mutable Graph::IMaterialNodeTarget container.

This method returns a mutable pointer to the node's Graph::IMaterialNodeTarget container, which allows to set or query the material this state node refers to.

Returns
The mutable Graph::IMaterialNodeTarget container, or null if not available.

◆ GetMaterialNodeTarget() [2/2]

virtual const IMaterialNodeTarget* Murl::Graph::IMaterialState::GetMaterialNodeTarget ( ) const
pure virtual

Get the constant Graph::IMaterialNodeTarget container.

This method returns a constant pointer to the node's Graph::IMaterialNodeTarget container, which allows to query the material this state node refers to.

Returns
The mutable Graph::IMaterialNodeTarget container, or null if not available.
