Object Info Node


Object Info Node.

The Object Info node gives information about the object instance. This can be useful to give some variation to a single material assigned to multiple instances, either manually controlled through the object index, based on the object location, or randomized for each instance. For example a Noise texture can give random colors or a Color Ramp can give a range of colors to be randomly picked from.
