I just finished re-reading the COFFEE introduction to Matrices and Vectors.
It was a nice read, but I noticed, comparing it to the equal Python Docs chapter ("Matrix fundamentals") that the last part about Vectors and Points was missing from the Python docs.
In that part the essential GetMulP COFFEE function is introduced and since I couldn't find that function in the Python SDK I would like to ask what the equivalence is in Python.
Can we just write M * P if M is a matrix and P is a point?
Thanks for reading!
PS: There's a typo in the Python version of the Matrix fundamentals:
If Mg is a matrix in global space and Mag is object a's global matrix, then Mag-1*Mg equals the first matrix' in a's local coordinates
I believe it should be
If Mg is a matrix in global space and Mag is object a's global matrix, then Mag^-1*Mg equals the first matrix' in a's local coordinates
