Thank you for the report, but 2.8 is currently under heavy development, and we are not taking bugs from end users yet.
Keep watching for updates at https://builder.blender.org/download/ to see if your issue got resolved.

Adding existing api call link.to_socket.is_linked == False enables muted wires in Animation Nodes (limited testing 😄).

#..\tree_info\forest_data.py
        for link in links:
            if (link.from_node.bl_idname == "NodeUndefined" or
                link.to_socket.is_linked == False or
                link.to_node.bl_idname == "NodeUndefined"):
                continue
            originSocket = link.from_socket
            targetSocket = link.to_socket

Flag target socket as used/unused when muting wires. Enables the use of existing socket.is_linked api method in addition to the link.is_muted method.

Charlie Jolly (charlie) added a comment to T52659: Mute node links (design task).

It should be noted that the original idea for this feature came from Thomas Heizle, who was using Blender as an example for suggesting new node features to an audio application called Usine, worth checking his original post here: http://www.sensomusic.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=4918

Julian Eisel (Severin) added a comment to T52659: Mute node links (design task).

My suggestion instead:

  • Add a re-route socket when disconnecting a socket.
  • If you draw a re-route socket into an empty socket, you remove the re-route socket, and link the re-route socket input with this new socket.

    This way you can still easily disconnect and reconnect sockets in an almost non-destructive way. And it doesn't add any new functionality to Blender, just polish the existent ones.

TBH this sounds like a rather confusing workaround to me :) Imagine a new reroute socket appears each time you disconnect sockets. It would be a confusing surprise to see those reroutes appear out of the blue ("what are these little dots that keep appearing?!") . A different behavior when using knife cutting would be even more confusing. And like Campbell mentioned, you had to remove them all the time.

@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) generally sounds good. Just wondering if people will be annoyed if they have to manually delete the dangling sockets - where they didnt have to previously.

Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) added a comment to T52659: Mute node links (design task).

Would be interested to hear from users who work with others, sharing complex node groups for eg.

While random hard-to-find muted links would certainly make understanding someone else's node tree harder, there are many other ways to get confused already: muted nodes hidden in groups, non-active output nodes, lack of frames & reroutes, etc - it's up to the author of the node tree to make sure it is readable if he/she is sharing it with others. I believe the majority of blender users work alone, so this shouldn't be a major reason for dismissing the patch.

Main risk AFAICS is this isn't obvious when zoomed out and users loose time troubleshooting someone elses file only to find a link was muted.

Greg Zaal (gregzaal) added a comment to T52659: Mute node links (design task).

Initially I wasn't sure if/when this feature would be used, but thinking about it I often like to temporarily add reroute nodes before breaking a connection (like this) to make it easier to re-add the connection after testing something, especially when dealing with large node trees.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T52659: Mute node links (design task).

I didn't test this yet, but I can see how this can be quite useful, especially in large and complex nodetrees with long noodle connections, where you want to compare the effect of a node input with the original node input value. Visually it is consistent with the red color of the mute node functionality and seems pretty straight forward to use.

I messaged Jacques Lucke on BA about AN/Pynodes, and he suggested that the API description should be changed and that it would be an easy change to support muted wires.
