Catcher and Pitcher Nodes



Anytime you create an avatar “seat”, we recommend that you also include Catcher & Pitcher Nodes as well.

The best way to insure that you do not accidentally change this distance between C&P Nodes, is to Merge the nodes, along with the Seat Node and placeholder avatar model, into your model from a preexisting IMVU provided Max file.

You can easily merge these nodes from the Example 3D Room file here:
