Processor Nodes

To understand how use FFAStrans, you have to understand how it works. It works by a sequence of processor nodes where each node runs one after the other. You have to choose a first node, which continues to the second if the conditions are met, then to the third if the conditions are met, etc. The running direction of the processor nodes is from left to right. There is an input and/or an output and each output goes into an input.

Node Presets : The FFAStrans 1.x Version brings a useful feature calls “preset”(located at the top of each node). You can set your node as you want and save it to become a preset. This one can be renamed, copied, exported, imported, called back (for the same kind of node) and deleted.
At last, you can lock your preset to avoid settings modify. However, please note that the preset itself is not locked. It can still be modified in another node and saved, thus changing the preset settings for all nodes using that preset.
