This script will select all related particle flow nodes in the scene.
macroScript Select_PF_Nodes category:"Particle Flow" buttonText:"Select PF Nodes" tooltip:"Select PF Nodes" ( pf_sources = for i in $* where (i.classid) == 1345457306 collect i pf_events = for i in $* where (i.classid) == 515064576 collect i pf_actions = for i in $* where (i.classid) == 515064320 collect i deselect $* selectmore pf_sources selectmore pf_events selectmore pf_actions )
This also let’s you collect all the Particle Flow nodes on to a single layer. Occasionally the nodes can become scattered inside your layers which often leads to the ff:
- Particles operators getting deleted accidentally.
- Particles not showing in the viewports because the Display Operator is on a different (hidden) layer.
- Layers having invisible items.
The script is a Macroscript, run it once and go to your Customize User Interface dialog, under the Keyboard tab, look for Select PF Nodes inside the Particle Flow category.
