Marionette - data coming out of Content Node

Recommended Posts

Hi there I'm a newbie to Marionette and and excited about learning it. However, I'm having trouble with some unexpected wire values coming out of the Contents node that I'm hoping someone can help me with.  


I made a simple group with some rectangles in it, and used a Name node to get that into Marionette. Then I put a Contents node to get the individual rectangles in. When I debug the wire coming out of the Contents node, I've getting a single value containing codes corresponding to the number of rectangles in the group, but I'm expecting a list of values with each value being "Vectorworks Handle type: 3". 


I'm using this video as a guide, and at 21:25  is where I'm learning what the Contents node should output (


Thanks so much in advance for your help

The Content-Node "groups" the Values in List sequences (to be able to get groups in groups). In your case, just use the "flatten-Node" to get single values instead of a list-sequences.
