Vector2Matrix Operator

Basic Node Parameter

Vector2Matrix Operator

This is a unique node that converts vectors to matrices. For example, an object’s position vector can be converted to a matrix that can be applied to another object. A position vector will be converted to vectors V1 to V3, which show the selected axis in the direction of the position vector. The offset (i.e. matrix’ V0 vector) will remain free (unoccupied). If you plane to transfer matrices generated using this node onto another object, the offset should be added separately to the matrix in order to be able to move the object freely.

Select the desired axis in the Attribute Manager.
