Node Interface

Overview

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.

Settings

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:

Add

Adds the two vectors together.

Subtract

Subtracts Vector2 from Vector1.

Average

Calculates the mean value of the two vectors.

Dot Product

Calculates the dot product of the two vectors (note: the result is in the Value output port).

Cross Product

Calculates the cross product of the two vectors (note: the result is in the Vector output port).

Normalize

Normalizes Vector1 and outputs the normalized vector. Vector2 is not used.

Vector1 *, Vector2 *

The two vectors to operate on..

Output

Vector

The vector after the operation is carried out. Not applicable if the operation is set to Dot Product.

Value

The output value if the operation was set to Dot Product. Otherwise not applicable.
