Move to origin and restore original position

Recommended Posts

I know how to move an object to origin with transform node (with CEX CEY CEZ) but can't get how to restore original position after...

Here is move an object to origin with VEX:

// Get center of the oject bounding box (centroid)
vector min = {0, 0, 0};
vector max = {0, 0, 0};
getpointbbox(0, min, max);
vector centroid = (max + min)/2.0;

// Build and apply transformation matrix
vector translate = centroid;
vector rotate = {0,0,0};
vector scale = {1,1,1};
matrix xform = invert(maketransform(0, 0, translate, rotate, scale));
@P *= xform;

// Store transformation matrix in attribute
4@xform_matrix = xform;

Return to original position:

@P *= invert(4@xform_matrix);

Hi, thanks for this and it's wonderful and works for particles.

However, it doesn't seem to centroid the rotation as well?
