In this practice project I am making a sphere with extruding rocks. The scale of the rocks depend on how close the selected empty object is to the sphere (as shown in the second image). In the first image, I would like to know why sliding the factor does nothing. P.S ignore the muted nodes please. enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Multiply does (1-Fac)*A + Fac*A*B (src), ie. Factor lerps between A and A*B. So one reason Factor would do nothing is if A and A*B are equal. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I don't understand what exactly you are trying to achieve. But I see that you have set mix node to multiply. In this case, you multiply dist attribute by scale. Scale is 1.

So, dist * 1 = dist - no changes.
