Set instance geometry - Switch between instance and preview geometries

If you plug high res geometries into instance_geometries and low res into preview_geometries port of set_instance_geometry node, It would be very handy if  you could toggle between low or high res mode.

 

It doesn't feel right needing to connect and disconnect ports to change the display mode.

Hi!

Please insert an "if" node between the shape node and the "preview geometries" input , this allows you to toggle the preview object "on" and "off" by changing the bool value ("condition") of the "if" node.

Yep adding an if node does the trick.

I was expecting the set_instance_geometry node might be high level enough to also include this switch. But the Bifrost nodes seem more granular so far.

Hi!

 

You even would not need to connect the main instance geometries to the if node (but you can do if you want).

If no input is provided to the preview geometries then automatically the main instances should be used.
