Common Operator Info
The color of the icon should indicate a confidence of its behavior.
The standard blue icon indicates that the author believes the operator is ready for production use. Regardless, there are no guarantees.
The green variation indicates that the operator is still undergoing changes or testing. Users who are evaluating a green operator should be cautious and forgiving.
Any operators with a red icon make no pretense of being useful or safe. These are experiments or prototypes which may act erratically. Users should anticipate crashing the master program.
Beware that the status and icon on the help page may not represent the particular version you are using.
The following additional bindings already exist and may be added to the release if needed.
While the Free Electron libraries have support for Windows and OSX, the operators are currently only tested under Linux.
The Create Operator sub menu will simply do a createNode on the specified node type. But since this sub menu is auto-generated, it can be useful to see what nodes are available.
The Brush Tool menu item activates an FE tool on the toolbox. Many FE nodes have interactive features available in the main 3D viewer. To use the interactive features, the FE tool has to be active and the particular node has to be selected in the Attribute Editor.
The Reveal Stages option tells FE to create a new shape for every operator it adds. This is not the conventional behavior for Maya deformers, but it can be very useful for seeing the effect of each operator if you don't mind all the additional entries in the outline.
At the bottom of the Maya FE menu is a list of nodes that can be added and wired automatically. Many of these have auto-generated option boxes with all the parameters for that node. Note that the Wrap option box is actually providing the settings for a binding node. Much of the behavior of the wrap node is controlled by the settings on the associated bind node.
