# Vertex Options

The **Vertex Options** section provides options related to the position of model vertices, and can be used to modify a material's vertices in various ways without actually modifying the mesh.

## Local Translation

`Type`

:**Vector3**

How much to move the vertices of the mesh (in base units of meters) with respect to its local coordinate system, on a per-axis basis. This means that it will line up with the mesh regardless of the mesh's rotation, and will be scaled with the scaling of the mesh's axes.

## Local Rotation

`Type`

:**Vector3**

How much to rotate the vertices of the mesh (in units of degrees) with respect to its local coordinate system, on a per-axis basis.

## Local Rotation Speed

`Type`

:**Vector3**

How much constant rotation speed to apply to the vertices of the mesh, on a per-axis basis. This is defined in degrees per `20`

seconds, so a value of `360`

will complete one rotation in `20`

seconds, while a value of `7200`

would complete one rotation per second.

## Local Scale

`Type`

:**Vector4**

How much to scale the mesh relative to its local coordinate system, on a per-axis basis. The **X**, **Y**, and **Z** value affect their respective axes, while the **W** value scales all axes uniformly.

## World Translation

`Type`

:**Vector3**

How much to move the vertices of the mesh (in units of meters) with respect to the world coordinate system, on a per-axis basis. This means that it will not necissarily line up with the mesh if the mesh is rotated, and will always uniformly move the mesh regardless of the mesh's scaling.

## Vertex Height

`Type`

:**Float**

How much to offset the vertices of the mesh (in units of meters) along the vertex normals. This will apply a constant value regardless of the mesh's scaling. The modified height is scaled by the Height Map and modified by the Mask Bias.

### Height Map

`Type`

:**Data**Texture (sRGB**OFF**)

A texture used to modify the vertex height adjustment. This represents the low and high points of to be used for vertex modification.

### Mask Bias

`Type`

:**Float**, Range:`0.0 - 1.0`

How much to offset the vertex height for the mask. A value of `0`

will mean that the vertex height will only move up from the unmodified position. A value of `0.5`

will mean the vertex height will go down by half the vertex height where the mask is pure black, up by half the vertex height where the mask is pure white. A value of `1.0`

means the vertex height will only move down from the unmodified position.

## Rounding Enabled

`Type`

:**Checkbox**

Vertex Rounding snaps vertices to specific intervals in the world coordinate system. The amount of snap interval is defined by the Rounding Interval. This option can be used to create retro effects, or pixelization.

### Rounding Interval

Defines the interval for vertex rounding. This is defined as the distance between points in local space, in base units of meters. For example, a value of `0.1`

will round vertices to the nearest tenth of a meter (if the object is scaled uniformly).
