Lacing Best Practices

When applying multiple parameter values to an element, is it a best practice to lace nodes in series, like what is shown on the right side of the attached image? Are there any performance differences between the two? On a couple of occasions, I’ve noticed some of the parameters not updating when lacing like what is shown on the left, but have never experienced it lacing them in series. Also, are there any performance gains by creating and using custom nodes in place of commonly used portions of a graph?

Hi you can do this and save some space,


but all the elements must have those parameters, also if you are appling different values you need to have correct lists of values. I hope this helps :slight_smile:

I would only use the one node to set the parameters, ensuring the list length and data for the parameters/ values are matched and equal. This seems to speed things up a bit.

Thanks for the tip guys! That method will save some space for sure.
