Macro: Displaying node controls inside drop-down

#1

Post by messiah-resolve » Sat May 25, 2019 7:14 am

HI

I've created a macro contaning 3 nodes.
I want to see the controls I've choose of each node in the inspector within a drop-down menu (expand/collapse control).
I'm not a programmer, any help with a sample file would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

thank you for your help.
I understand there no easy way to do it, like a tool...?
I'm not a programmer :)

Depends on your definition of easy :)

Once you get your head around how Macros, Comps,... are structured in Fusion, you will be amazed at how much power you have at your fingertips... It's worth getting into, believe me.

It's not programming, just learning a bit of structure.

What you can certainly do right away is post your Macro (the forum accepts .setting files for attachments) and we can take a look at what you want and make it into a short tutorial.

PS. please refrain from double-posting. Everything you find on WSL is volunteered, and time is precious. Most questions will be answered in time, especially when you share something we can work with.
