Examples | PVector v; void setup() { noLoop(); v = new PVector(5, 10, 0); } void draw() { ellipse(v.x, v.y, 12, 12); v.mult(6); ellipse(v.x, v.y, 24, 24); } PVector v1; void setup() { noLoop(); v1 = new PVector(5, 10, 0); } void draw() { ellipse(v1.x, v1.y, 12, 12); PVector v2 = PVector.mult(v1, 6); ellipse(v2.x, v2.y, 24, 24); } | ||||||

Description | Multiplies a vector by a scalar. The version of the method that uses a float acts directly on the vector upon which it is called (as in the first example above). The versions that receive both a PVector and a float as arguments are static methods, and each returns a new PVector that is the result of the multiplication operation. Both examples above produce the same visual output. | ||||||
