    I've thaught I could use a basecontainer , but it doesn't want to get me the matrix stored ( it gives me a 0 matrix ( the "preset" one I guess )
    first I did  var bc = new(Basecontainer) ... then   bc->SetData(1,mat); ....  and then I call bc->GetMatrix(1) ;    .. but the result is matrix [ 0,0,0,0 ]
    maybe there is a boolean storage function like the freeze node ?

    Howdy,

    Well, I'm not sure how you do it in coffee, but normally you would store values in an object's or tag's BaseContainer, instead of a "new" BaseContainer, and it's recommended to only use object or tag BaseContainer ID's from 1000 and up, because there can be internal data stored in ID's below 1000 that you would overwrite.

    Adios,

    With the COFFEE node you have to use a global variable, not very elegant but it works.

    Copy this into the COFFEE node, Switch is the boolean input, Value the value (or your matrix) and Output the output.

    cheers,
