Certain sequences of nodes are useful in more than one application, so it is convenient to store them together as a single reusable unit, or macro node. IIM allows the user to export a portion of a node chain as a macro node to be loaded into the Node Library and inserted into a new chain as a single node. The user may specify which of the properties of the original nodes are visible in the exported macro node (see Figure 3). a0 Controllers.
