Adjust Execution Order with the Shift Priority Tag

With complex rigs it is common for expressions to be dependent on the results of other expressions. This paired with C4D's hierarchies and deformers can often mean it's difficult to get everything to execute in the correct order without introducing delays.

The shift priority tag allows you to adjust the priority of all of the expressions in a given hierarchy, freeing you to place objects where they make the most sense in your scene instead of where they need to be to get the right execution order.
