What is the Rebel Pack
The product team of Bifrost often make compounds for our own use, and these sometimes make it into the compounds Bifrost ships with. Quite a few of the compounds that ship with Bifrost today started here. These compounds are distributed together in a "pack", where some compounds use and rely on other compounds in a pack. The compounds included include math utilities, property access nodes, and nodes for manipulating strands, meshes, as well as some simulation caching utilities.
In the graph these are all marked with a red "R" icon as their names and namespaces are integrated into the existing ones. Ones with an orange test tube are especially experimental - we expect them to change.
These are not officially supported like the compounds that ship with Bifrost, but we have been maintaining these and intend to continue to do so. We will also specify which versions of Bifrost these nodes are intended to work with. This is also a way for us, the product team of Bifrost, to act as if we're TDs at a studio maintaining our own set of compounds, which makes our testing a bit more like the real world.
This version, Rebel Pack 0.2.0, works with Bifrost 188.8.131.52 and later versions.
To install the rebel pack, there are two options:
For home users, unzip the file and place the whole Rebel Pack directory in your compound directory in your user folder. For more information on that, please see this forum post. https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/bifrost-forum/how-do-i-install-pre-built-compounds-and-graphs/td-p/8904712
For a shared compounds directory managed with environment variables, a config file is included. Please see the documentation for more information. http://help-staging.autodesk.com/view/BIFROST/ENU/?guid=Bifrost_Common_build_a_graph_create_and_edit_compounds_set_up_additional_compound_locations_html
