Get Input Color

Returns the value of an input parameter as a color. The color channels are assumed to be a floating point, including the alpha channel. Use this node with the Float4 substance data type.


You can use this node with all substance data types: Float1 through Float4 and Integer1 through Integer4. However, if the input parameter has fewer dimensions, the extra dimensions are assigned a value of 0.

The node does not perform any range conversion. For example, if an Integer4 substance data type has a value of (255, 0, 0, 255), this is returned as (255.0, 0.0, 0.0, 255.0), which is outside the normal 0.0 to 1.0 range of a color value.
