Description

Enables you to isolate a module or multiple modules for operations.

Select commands are a staple of CG software. Shogun Post provides a flexible array of select functions to meet any selection requirement. This flexibility is especially powerful when deployed in scripts.

When handling scenes containing multiple characters, selection functions become even more important; select -priority enables you to automatically operate on the identically named modules within multiple character hierarchies without having to explicitly declare verbose paths.
