Grouping Nodes In Slate Material Editor:

We need the ability to take a set of nodes in the Slate Material Editor and group them. Grouping would mean creating a custom colored box that you could drop nodes in and out of, and then collapse these groups so you can de-clutter your material graph.

This sort of workflow is common in programs like Shake, Nuke, Katana, Substance Designer, etc, but we really need it as part of the base SME.

With grouping, this could be reduced to a readable graph that people could easily edit :)

If you agree with this wish, please go and VOTE for it on the official Autodesk Wishlist. The top voted wishes will be considered for future versions of max.
