This command selects objects in the scene via their membership in any selection sets previously defined.

Selection commands are a staple of CG software. Shogun Post provides a flexible array of select functions, including this selectSet command, to meet just about any selection requirement.

The selectSet command coupled with pre-defined selection sets enables you to set up your scenes without regard to specific marker names. For example, a selection set can be defined called setWaist that includes all the names you might encounter for waist markers, allowing the waist markers to be selected via the selection set rather then explicit marker names.
