Bounding box 4 corners

Recommended Posts


Been hacking away and i think this node gets the 4 corners now.

Thanks to advice from Patrick and his node that I messed with.

This only works for rectangles but get top R and bottom L is only a few clicks away.

The VS:GetBBox function only call the top left and bottom right.

Can you write a new function to call top right and bottom left and use it in a marionette node?

Or can you only use whats available in the VS:Function Reference?

Hey Alan,

I know it can be frustrating to have a function that does close to what you want but not exactly. There is no other function to use, but the values of the BotL and TopR can always be derived from the TopL and BotR.

TL, BR = vs.GetBBox(obj)

TR = (BR[0], TL[1])

BL = (TL[0], BR[1])

Thanks Sarah,

With Particks help I could understand



VAR p1X,p1Y :REAL;

VAR p2X,p2Y :REAL);

With my Noob expertise I did this and it worked.

botL2D = topL2D[0], botR2D[1]

topR2D = botR2D[0], topL2D[1]

So all this helps in understanding it all.

I also now understand that this gets the corners (extremities) of a bounding box, not the actual corners of the object in the case of a non regular shape like a non rectangular polygon.

Thanks again for all the assistance.
