RFC008 - Enumerating attributes#

2020-10-15, @eliemichel

Current Situation#

The OfxMesh structure can contain arbitrary attributes and an effect can retrieve them by name (since RFC012).

Key limitations#

However, an effect has no way of exploring attributes that it did not expect. This is however needed when effects is in theory able to forward any attribute it receives as input. A property kOfxMeshPropAttributeCount exists but there is no way of getting an attribute by index rather than by name.



  • Add a mesh effect suite entrypoint meshGetAttributeByIndex.
