I am close to nervous breakdown. I have tried everything but the viewer node does not show up. I have rendered the image. I have enabled the node Wranger add-on. When I click Shift+Ctrl+LMB the output of the node just connects to Material output but the viewer node does not show up. Would anyone have an idea ? enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Is there anything going on in your System Console while this is happening? Go to Window> Toggle System Console and then try it again. See if any Python Errors are popping up when trying to run the command. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The viewer node won't appear if you just have the default Principled BSDF shader in the shader editor and Shift+Ctrl+LMB click on that. If you add (for instance) a Voronoi texture and Shift+Ctrl+LMB click on that, does the viewer node then appear? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hey guys, you are the best, thank you very much !! Do not really know where the error came from.. Maybe from the fact that I use Anaconda a lot and it might have messed up with blender's python code ?? I reinstalled Blender and then it worked for Voronoi texture. Maybe its also just the fact that I was applying to the wrong nodes, even though I had tried it on a lot of nodes. Anyways, thank you so so so so much !! I can go on with my project. Have a wonderful day !! $\endgroup$
