[osg-users] FindNodeVisitor Operation?

Hi David,

Thanks for your useful help. I will try to create new TransformMatrixes for
unhandled geodes. First method can create so many problem. Programmatic way
is more understandable. Maybe, after I create MatrixTransformes and collect
all components then I can save .osg format the model with arranged type, and
then I can read this .osg model instead of collection the parent-child
status every time :)

Best Regards,

Ümit Uzun
