Normalize 

  • The Normalize operator has one input and one output.
  • The input must be a Vector and has no default value when unconnected.
  • The output is the normalized (lenght 1.0) vector with the same direction as the input. 

VectorCross 

  • The VectorCross operator has two inputs and one output.
  • The two inputs must be Vector values and have no default values when unconnected.
  • The output is the vector cross product of the two inputs - a vector perpendicular to the two vectors and with length equal to the area of the parallelogram defined by the two vectors. 

VectorDot  

  • The VectorDot operator has two inputs and one output.
  • The two inputs must be Vectors and have no default values when unconnected.
  • NOTE that the VectorDot result only makes sense when the two inputs are Normalized.
  • The output is a Float representing the length of the projection of the one vector onto the other.
