Layer to 3D Object & 3D Object to Layer

Hey guys ;)

Wanted to know if there is a reason why something like Karl Henkel both his "3D Object to Layer" and "Layer to 3D Object" nodes are not included in the stock nodes ?
Using it quite often to bypass some limitations (Use Copy 3D Object with Material with layers), having scene based compositions not having to select different Z-axis to blend nicely etc.

Once "Allow custom node paths" will be implemented it won't be really a problem anymore, but until then, it's sometimes complicated to share compositions with custom nodes.

Thanks ;)

Apply Mask node for layers

In response to @jersmi's question:

Is there an accepted way to apply a mask from layer to layer, like the Apply Mask node for images? Looks like I have to convert to an image, then apply a mask, then convert back to layer to stay within my current workflow?

Flashx - Audio Reactive Flashes

Wanted to recreate the effect of some very bright led lights flashing on sound.

Here is a video preview on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/christian.heudens/videos/1954176801509901/

This will analyse the ambient loudness and smooth the sensitivity of the audio input over some seconds to allow the composition to look nice (lights not to be too small or too big) and analyse the frequencies wether the ambient volume is high or low. May be better methods to do so, any other method welcome.
