Add existing node to current virtual reality world




addNode(h,node_name,wrl_file) adds a new node named node_name, which contains (or points to) the wrl_file. It creates a node object on the world of type Transform and adds an existing node, node_name, to the current virtual reality world.

The addNode method adds all the objects in the .wrl file to the virtual reality animation object under one node. If you want to add separate nodes for the objects in the .wrl file, place each node in a separate .wrl file.

Define the vrnode object associated with the node object using a DEF statement in the .wrl file.

Input Arguments

Virtual reality animation object, specified as an Aero.VirtualRealityAnimation object.

vrworld node name, specified as a character vector or string. This name must be unique from other node names in the same .wrl file. The wrl_file must contain the node to be added.

Data Types: char | string

The wrl_file is the VRML file from which the new node is taken. wrl_file must contain the node to be added. You must specify the full path for this file.
