    • getRotation

      public float[] getRotation()

      Tooltip: rotation_changed events equal sum of relative bearing changes plus offset value about Y-axis in local coordinate system.
      • Warning: it is an error to define this transient outputOnly field in an X3D file, instead only use it a source for ROUTE events.

    • getTrackPoint

      public float[] getTrackPoint()

      Accessor method to assign String value to inputOutput SFString field named USE.

      Tooltip: USE means reuse an already DEF-ed node ID, excluding all child nodes and all other attributes (except for containerField, which can have a different value).
      • Hint: USE references to previously defined DEF geometry (instead of duplicating nodes) can improve performance.
      • Warning: do NOT include any child nodes, a DEF attribute, or any other attribute values (except for containerField) when defining a USE attribute.
