Allows easy position of lights, or any object around another one.

Description

This node transforms its children with latitude and longitude controls, instead of typical translate and rotate. It makes it more intuitive to position objects such as lights.

Note that there is an equivalent node at the SOP level

Parameters

Name Type Description
center vector3 center of the transform
longitude float moves the objects along the longitude, which is equivalent to a rotation on the y axis
latitude float moves the objects along the latitude, which is equivalent to a rotation on the z or x axis
depth float moves the point aways from the center
