Get Context

This Node offers comprehensive access to data that is in part first created during rendering, e.g., the position of each render sample on the surface or the smoothed surface Normal at that location. By modifying these settings and returning the information via the Get Context Node, effects can be achieved that you could have only dreamed of – until now.

The context read out here can also be assigned using a separate input. Normally, the lion’s share of this information will be taken, among others, from the Texture, UVW, Normal and Phong tags.
