Hi Danyel,
> Hi,
> i'm new to OSG and i was wondering if there is a simple way to "graphically" output a scenegroup with all nodes. I tried using
> osgDB::writeNodeFile(*Node, "saved.osg"); but obviously this just a serialization of the very one node I'm inputting.
> osgDB::writeObjectFile(*Node,"saved2.osg"); outputs already a structure, but it's very confusing. Hopefully one of you has a hint for me on how doing this output most effectively.
Saving a node will save the node with it's children. You can use the 
graphviz output format (.dot) to get the structure. See 
http://forum.openscenegraph.org/viewtopic.php?t=1968&view=previous for 
some older topic on this.
As a side node: osg is the deprecated format. Use osgt, osgx or osgb for 
text, XML and binary formats.
