This node defines a 2D transformation applied to texture coordinates. This affects the way textures are applied to the surfaces of subsequent shapes. The transformation consists of (in order) a non-uniform scale about an arbitrary center point, a rotation about that same point, and a translation. (Note: while the transformations can be thought of as being applied in that order, the GL matrices are actually premultiplied in the opposite order. Therefore, the operations are listed in the reverse order throughout this reference page.) This allows a user to change the size and position of the textures on objects.


SoSFVec2f translation
Translation in S and T.

SoSFFloat rotation
Counter-clockwise rotation of the coordinate space, in radians. This results in a clockwise rotation of the texture on the object.

SoSFVec2f scaleFactor
Scaling factors in S and T.

SoSFVec2f center
Center point used for scaling and rotation.


Creates a texture transformation node with default settings.

static SoType getClassTypeId()
Returns type identifier for this class.

Action Behavior
