Node Wrangler

Node Wrangler provides various tools that help you to work with nodes quickly and efficiently.

While many of this add-on’s functions work in all supported node editors (Compositor, Shader, Geometry Nodes, and Texture Nodes) some functions only work in specific node editors, and some functions work differently per editor. Functions that only work in specific editors are marked with labels (Compositor, Shader, Geometry Nodes, Texture Nodes). Functions without labels should work for all node editors.

Активация

  • Open Blender and go to the Preferences, then the Add-ons tab.

  • Find Node Wrangler and enable the add-on.

Использование

Use the panel in Sidebar of the node editor or press Shift-W to bring up the quick access menu. You can also look up the shortcut list in the add-on preferences panel.

../../_images/addons_node_node-wrangler_menu.png

You can access most functions from the sidebar panel or quick access menu.

Описание

Lazy Connect

Справка

Горячая клавиша:

Alt-RMB-drag, Shift-Alt-RMB-drag

Connect two nodes without even clicking the sockets. Just drag the cursor from one node to another while holding Alt-RMB. It will select the nodes nearest the start and end points of the drag for connection, so you don’t even have to click on the nodes.

../../_images/addons_node_node-wrangler_lazy-connect.png

Selection can be lazy.

It tries to connect the best-matched sockets possible, based on their names, types, and whether they are open or not.

For a more precise connection, you can alternatively use Shift-Alt-RMB. It brings up menus of available inputs and outputs before connection, so you can select the exact sockets to connect. It’s especially useful when working with a large node tree since you can make connections without frequently zooming in and out.

Lazy Mix

Справка

Горячая клавиша:

Shift-Ctrl-RMB-drag

Connect the outputs of two nodes into an appropriate «mix» type of node. This is the «lazy» way of selecting nodes and executing the Mix function from Merge with Automatic Type Detection.

Merge

Справка

Меню:

Node Wrangler ‣ Merge Selected Nodes

Connect outputs of the selected nodes into a «mix» type of node (Mix, Math, Z-Combine, Alpha Over, Mix Shader, Add Shader, Join Geometry).

Примечание

Merge currently does not support outputs of Integer, String, or Boolean types from Geometry Nodes.

There are automatic and manual ways of merging. The automatic ways let the add-on determine which «mix» node to use based on the types of outputs to merge. The manual ways let you decide and force connections even if the types of outputs and the «mix» node are not compatible.

Примечание

Generally, the modifier part of the shortcut signifies the type of «mix» node you want to use (Ctrl for automatic detection, Ctrl-Alt for the Mix node, and Shift-Ctrl for the Math node), the non-modifier part signifies the mode of «mix» node you want to set (NumpadPlus for add, NumpadMinus for subtract, NumpadSlash for divide, and NumpadAsterisk for multiply).

Merge with Automatic Type Detection

The automatic merge functions determine the type of «mix» node to use based on the types of outputs to merge. If it has a Color output, it will use the Mix node. It will use the Math node if both outputs are of Value type. Add Shader, Mix Shader, and Join Geometry nodes will also be used for specific cases.

Режимы моделирования
Add Ctrl-=, Ctrl-NumpadPlus

Merge into Mix or Math nodes, then set blend mode or math operation as Add. If the outputs are Shaders, it will use Add Shader node instead.

Multiply Ctrl-8, Ctrl-NumpadAsterisk

Merge into Mix or Math nodes, then set blend mode or math operation as Multiply.

Subtract Ctrl-Minus, Ctrl-NumpadMinus

Merge into Mix or Math nodes, then set blend mode or math operation as Subtract.

Divide Ctrl-Slash, Ctrl-NumpadSlash

Merge into Mix or Math nodes, then set blend mode or math operation as Divide.

Mix Ctrl-0, Ctrl-Numpad0

Merge into Mix node, then set blend mode as Mix. If the outputs are Shaders, it will use Mix Shader node instead. If the outputs are Geometry, it will use Join Geometry node.

Viewer Focus

Compositor

Справка

Горячая клавиша:

Header ‣ Add ‣ Input ‣ Attributes

Add an Attribute node with the selected attribute.

Preview Node Output

Shader Geometry Nodes

Справка

Горячая клавиша:

Shift-Ctrl-LMB for Shader, Shift-Alt-LMB for Geometry Nodes

Connect an output of the selected node to the final output of the node tree (the Material Output or World Output for Shader, the final Group Output for Geometry Nodes) to preview its output in the viewport. You can cycle through the available outputs by clicking it again while holding the modifier keys.

См.также

While in Shader, any output can be connected to the final output, in Geometry Nodes, only Geometry outputs can be connected to the final output. To preview other types of outputs in Geometry Nodes, use its own Viewer Node.

Node Wrangler ‣ Frame Selected

Горячая клавиша:

Shift-P

Insert the selected nodes into a Frame node.

Reload Images

Compositor Shader Texture Nodes

Справка

Node Wrangler ‣ Copy to Selected ‣ Copy Label

Горячая клавиша:

Shift-V, Shift-C

Copy custom labels to all of the selected nodes. You can copy them from the active node (Shift-V), from the nodes that are linked to the selected ones, or from the names of the sockets that the selected nodes are linked to. Shift-C will bring up a submenu with all available options.

Clear Label

Справка

Меню:

Add Texture Setup

Shader

Справка

Меню:

Node Wrangler ‣ Add Texture Setup

Горячая клавиша:

Ctrl-T

Add a setup of a texture node, Texture Coordinate, and Mapping nodes to any shader node. If you select a texture node, it will only add the Texture Coordinate and Mapping nodes. For a background shader it will add an Environment Texture node.

Add Principled Texture Setup

Shader

Справка

Меню:

Node Wrangler ‣ Add Principled Setup

Горячая клавиша:

Shift-Ctrl-T

Add a principled texture setup from the selected texture files. Select a Principled BSDF node, select Add Principled Setup from the quick access menu (or press Shift-Ctrl-T), and select texture files. It automates the process of adding Image Texture nodes, loading images, selecting the appropriate Color Space, and connecting their outputs to the Principled BSDF node.

It detects the type of textures by looking at their file names. You can edit the tags used for this matching process in the add-on preferences.

../../_images/addons_node_node-wrangler_swap_pbr-setup.jpg

Setting up these textures can take dozens of clicks, even with Node Wrangler’s other tools. With Principled Texture Setup, you can reduce that to a few clicks.

Горячая клавиша:

Slash

Add reroute nodes to each output of the selected nodes.

Align Nodes

Справка

Меню:

Node Wrangler ‣ Align Nodes
