Detailed Description

Group node that traverses one chosen child.

This group node traverses exactly one, none or all of its children. It implements an operation similar to the switch statement in C. One can use this node to switch on and off the effects of some properties, to switch between different properties, to switch between different geometry or to control the visibility of geometry.

The whichChild field specifies the index of the child to traverse, where the first child has index 0. There are several special values that can be used:

There are several extended versions of this node with additional/different behavior:
