# Compare Node

The Compare node takes two inputs and does an operation to determine whether they are similar. The node can work on all generic data types, and has modes for vectors that contain more complex comparisons, which can help to reduce the number of necessary nodes, and make a node tree more readable.

## Inputs

A, B

Standard value inputs of the selected type.

C

Compared against the dot product of two input vectors in when the Mode property is set to Dot Product.

Epsilon

Esse valor é usado como um limiar para ainda considerar as duas entradas como iguais para as operações Equal e Not Equal.

## Properties

Mode
Element-Wise

Compare each axis of the input vectors separately, and output true only when the result is true for each axis.

Length

Compare the length of the two input vectors.

Média

Compare the average of the elements of the input vectors. This is the same as the implicit conversion used when setting the node’s data type to Float.

Dot Product

Compare the dot product of the two vectors with the separate C input, using the selected operation. The dot product outputs a single value that says how much the two vectors «agree».

Direção

Compare the angle between the two vectors with the separate Angle input, using the selected operation. The vectors are normalized, so their length does not matter.

Operação
Less Than

True when the first input is smaller than second input.

Less Than or Equal

True when the first input is smaller than the second input or equal.

Greater Than

True when the first input is greater than the second input.

Greater Than or Equal

True when the first input is greater than the second input or equal.

Equal

True when both the difference between the two inputs is smaller than the Epsilon input.

Not Equal

True when both the difference between the two inputs is larger than the Epsilon input.

Brighter

True when the first color input is brighter than the second.

Darker

True when the first color input is darker than the second.
