Extract Transform VEX Variant


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to replicate the 'align' node with VEX.

What I'm looking for is simple matrix transform extraction with few reference point positions.


The goal is to calculate a rotation/translation matrix from between the actual geo and rest.


Thanks in advance.

vector p = point(0,"P",0); // pivot position
vector u = set(0,1,0);
vector n = normalize(v@v);
vector o = cross(u,n);
matrix3 m3 = set(o.x, o.y, o.z,
                 u.x, u.y, u.z,
                 n.x, n.y, n.z); //3D Rotation Matrix

matrix m4  = set(o.x, o.y, o.z, 0,
                 u.x, u.y, u.z, 0, 
                 n.x, n.y, n.z, 0,
                 p.x, p.y, p.z, 1); //3D Transformation matrix

If you dont have any vectors then you can build it using 3 points reference. Let me know if you need help for this too
