The inverse of this matrix (Read Only).

Inverted matrix is such that if multiplied by the original would result
in identity matrix.

If some matrix transforms vectors in a particular way,
then the inverse matrix can transform them back. For example,
Transform's worldToLocalMatrix and localToWorldMatrix
are inverses of each other.

// Angle and amount of stretching. var rotAngle: float; var stretch: float;

function Update () { // Create a rotation matrix from a Quaternion. var rot = Quaternion.Euler(rotAngle, 0, 0); var m = Matrix4x4.TRS(Vector3.zero, rot, Vector3.one);

// Get the inverse of the matrix (ie, to undo the rotation). var inv = m.inverse;

// For each vertex... for (var i = 0; i < origVerts.Length; i++) { // Rotate the vertex and scale it along its new Y axis. var pt = m.MultiplyPoint3x4(origVerts[i]); pt.y *= stretch;

// Return the vertex to its original rotation (but with the // scaling still applied). newVerts[i] = inv.MultiplyPoint3x4(pt); }
