Data Type

Here you can define the file type for the Node’s inputs and outputs. You can select from Float for single values or from the vector formats Color, Vector2D, Vector or Vector4D. For the vector types, the calculation of the percentage value will be made separately for each component.

Value [-∞..+∞]

This is the value that should be converted as a percentage between the Edge 1 and Edge 2 value range. If Value is less than Edge 1 and Edge 2, null will be output. If Value is larger than Edge 1 and Edge 2, 1 will be output.

Edge 1 [-∞..+∞]
Edge 2 [-∞..+∞]

These are the limit values for the percent calculation. If Value lies between Edge 1 and Edge 2, a percentage conversion of its value will be made relative to the range between the Edge 1 and Edge 2 values. The calculation will not be made linearly but will be made with a soft transition curve in the proximity of Edge 1 and Edge 2.
