I have been trying to use getTransformNodeByName(name).absolutePosition to get the world position from a transformNode that is the child of another transformNode.
But for some reason, both the worldspace (real absolute) and localspace cords appear depending on if the vector in the console is expanded or not… Odd…
If you look at the image below you can see what I am talking about. The vector seems to have a local coordinate value of the childNode if not expanded, but if you expand the object the values transform to world coordinates (what I need). WHAT???
If you try to use the .absolutePosition value, it is in localSpace not the world. What is going on here?
I tried meshes instead of transformNodes to verify it was not a transformNode thing, but get similar voodoo.
I hacked together an example. Sorry took a bit to strip all the unnecessary from the class.
NOTE, you have to load the pg once, open the console, then refresh with the console open to see double result.
See the console. VOODOO! (or possibly my poor understanding of things)
Did I break reality?
