public var lossyScale: Vector3;
public Vector3 lossyScale;


Attempts to get a scale value from the matrix.

Scale can only be represented correctly by a 3x3 matrix instead of a 3 component vector, if the given matrix has been skewed for example. lossyScale is a convenience property which attempts to match the scale from the matrix as much as possible. If the given matrix is orthogonal, the value will be correct.
