Here I am following a tutorial (the hand reveal) where Entagma uses the Attribute Vector Math in Geometry Nodes in Blender 2.93.0 beta but I don't see it anymore in Blender 4.0 and, my question is, how can I replace it ? Here you can find the screenshot from the tutorial and the screenshot with my datas :

from Entagma's tutorial : https://freeimage.host/i/entegma.JTygpKG my datas : https://freeimage.host/i/JTyrIRV link to the blender file : https://file.io/DdV4dFg96mnL

I also couldn't find the Point Instance node, I "solved" this by dragging the cube file directly into the Geometry Nodes board (see Object Info) then I connected it on Instance on Points as seen on the screenshot but, I'm not sure if it's the correct/best way to do it ?

  • $\begingroup$ yes I know that the Vector Math replaces it but (I forgot to mention that, I'm sorry) it looks nothing like the Attribute Vector Math therefore it needs to be completed with other nodes in order to achieve the same function as the Attribute Vector Math, correct me if I'm wrong... Kindly $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ With the fields workflow there is no concept of attribute vector math node anymore, you simply plug the vector math to the field you want to compute $\endgroup$

Following Entagma's formulation..

In GN Fields, to store an attribute on the points of the modified object representing a clamped linear (0->1) gradient between the locations of external objects A and B, you would now do this:

  • $\begingroup$ Alright, thank you. I have followed what you've done precisely but now my object is gone. i.postimg.cc/nrcsQBCN/diamond-gone.jpg To be honest I'm completely lost, being new to Blender it's hard to connect the dots and understand the Geometry Nodes universe. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, @Nexgen... Instance on Points replaces the provided points with the instances. If you want the underlying geometry to be part of the output, you have to join it back in explicitly: imgur.com/a/lWaRbCp.. (maybe it should have been called Points to Instances ) $\endgroup$
