-Similarly to how you can edit [[kcproperties|Properties]] on a generator, you can also edit properties on a node. Editing nodes directly allows you to adjust individual parts of a tree, to fine-tune what the procedural generation accomplished. This makes SpeedTree very “art-directable,​” since an artist is able to leverage procedural generation to get close to what they want very quickly, but still be able to modify the tree afterwards ​in exactly the way that they want.+Similarly to how you can edit [[kcproperties|Properties]] on a generator, you can also edit properties on a node.

-You can clear all of the node edits for a particular generator by choosing the "Clear Node Edits" option in the menu when you right click a generator in the [[toolgeneration_editor|Generation Editor]]. This will also bring back any nodes that were deleted.+You can clear all of the node edits for a particular generator by choosing the "Clear Node Edits" option in the menu when you right-click a generator in the [[toolgeneration_editor|Generation Editor]].
