A node I want to use requires it's inputs to be Vectors. However, video tracking nodes output separate x & y components, not a Vector. I can't seem to find any node that allows me to create a Vector from these components within the node editor.

Am I missing something? What would you recommend as a method of generating the vector input?

You can use a Combine RGBA node. This is because in practice color and vector inputs are more or less the same.

  • $\begingroup$ @Glyph heh, yeah it's pretty strange. They added a "combine XYZ" node to cycles for just this reason (it's identical to the combine RGB node). $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Dec 8 '15 at 21:06
