NIFF Editor can display a property dialog to reference and/or change the flag information settings of each node. To view this dialog, click the right mouse button on a node to display the pop-up menu, then select the Properties command. You can also select a node and then select the Properties command from the File menu.
The properties which can be set differ depending on the node, as outlined below:
|Scene node||Set the Scene node name and video interface settings.|
|Environment node||Set the Environment node name, fog, frame buffer and Z buffer settings.|
|Camera node||Set the Camera node name, type, and clipping plane settings.|
|Light node||Set the Light node name and ambient light, and verify the light type settings.|
|Object node||Set the Object node name, state, type, group, cycle, priority, rendering and billboard settings. When a NIFF 2.0 file is loaded, you can also set render for fog.|
|LOD node||View all the other object nodes that are linked to the different LOD levels inside an object node, displayed in order of distance. The distances can also be modified here.|
|Shape node||Set the Shape node name and type. When a NIFF 2.0 file is loaded, you can also specify the use of vertex alphas when fog is used.|
|Part node||Specify the Part node name.|
|Material node||Specify the node name, shading, type, primitive color, and user-defined settings. When a NIFF 2.0 file is loaded, you can also specify the ambient color, emission color, diffuse color, type of fog, and primitive color for fog.|
|Texture nod||Specify the node name, type, and wrapping. When a NIFF 2.0 file is loaded, you can also specify filtering and perspective correction, and check the MipMap level and color palette use status.|
|Animation node||Specify the Animation node name and loop settings. Check the animation type and frame rate settings.|
|Chain Root node||Specify the Chain Root node name.|
|Joint node||Specify the Joint node name and type.|
|Effect node||Specify the Effector node name.|
For the Properties dialogs, clicking the [OK] button after setting the necessary flags results in the settings being reflected in the NIFF file. To disregard the settings, click [Cancel].
