Bifrost USD: define_prototype_for_each_variant

Hello, everyone,
I did some USD instancing tests in Bifrost (2.4.0.0, Maya 2023). Pretty impressive so far, looking forward to using it in a project!

 

Everything is working fine, but I'm missing or can't find the node "define_prototype_for_each_variant" which can also be seen in the demo. See the screenshot below.

 

Can someone tell me why I can't find this node or what is behind it?

 

Best regards, 
Hermann

That node is not part of the 2.4 USD pack or the lab USD - the creator of the scene created a compound and call it like that. hopefully, he can see this thread and share it.

Thanks!  That would be nice, to get some insights. In this video the same setup is used.
This is exactly what I need. I want to load one usd asset with different variants.

If you are looking just for something similar to that then download the USD Labs and see the examples

And there is a topic called "How to scatter multiple USD references?" on the bifrost discord channel.

There is a lot of stuff inside.

@Christoph_Schaedl 

Thank you very much, guys! Especially thanks for mentioning the USD Labs Examples I did not know about. That will basically give me everything I need for instancing usd variants.

Cheers!
Hermann
