Fabric>Load Preset MenuItem Question

It's not clear to me what functionality this menu item provides. I've loaded a few presets to test and I do see that they are being evaluated, but without a connection to a specific scene node the intention is not clear. Questions:

  1. Where does the preset reside?
  2. Is the graph editable/accessible?
  3. Is this intended to allow execution of arbitrary KL, such as in an operator, etc?
  4. Could this be used to initialize a singleton, and if so, what would the lifetime of that singleton be?
  5. Is this saved with the scene in any way? If so, is order important?

Thanks,
-Judah

    Hi Judah

    There is no magic in that menu item. It tries to build a FabricMesh with the canvas preset you choose (see the video attached). But this can fail in many different ways (i.e. your preset might be a Fabric Modifier or controller) that it might be safer for us to remove it (I have created FABMAX-36 for this).

    Got it. I think it does make sense to remove it in that case. The contextual "Load/Save" buttons on the actual node UIs do the same thing and are more clear.

    Thank you.
