8. Transformations

Transformation nodes are a kind of node that changes the geometric properties of objects in a scene, like location and size. The Transform node class can actually perform all possible geometric transformations, but there are also some specialized subclasses with more limited effects. When writing code by hand the specialized versions will probably be easier to use.

8.1 Transformation Classes

These are most of the transformations available in Open Inventor, showing their fields and the respective default values. Remember that in your scene descriptions you don't have to bother including all the fields for a node, just the fields that you want to have something other than their default value.
