Converter: Vector Math
|Function||Perform mathematical operations on the input vectors and output the result|
|Nearest C4D equivalent||Xpresso Math, Dot Product and Cross Product nodes|
This node accepts two vector inputs, carries out an operation on them, and outputs the result.
Note: a * symbol next to the name indicates the parameter also has an input port. A # symbol indicates that the parameter can only be changed with an input node, not in the node itself.
Operation drop-down menu
This allows you to select the desired operation. All the operations output a vector except for Dot Product. The possible operations are:
Adds the two vectors together.
Subtracts Vector2 from Vector1.
Calculates the mean value of the two vectors.
Calculates the dot product of the two vectors (note: the result is in the Value output port).
Calculates the cross product of the two vectors (note: the result is in the Vector output port).
Normalizes Vector1 and outputs the normalized vector. Vector2 is not used.
Vector1 *, Vector2 *
The two vectors to operate on..
The vector after the operation is carried out. Not applicable if the operation is set to Dot Product.
The output value if the operation was set to Dot Product. Otherwise not applicable.
