Description

Sets a named vector value.

Four component vectors and colors are the same in Unity shaders. SetVector does almost exactly the same as SetColor just the input data type is different (xyzw in the vector becomes rgba in the color). The only difference is that color values are be converted from sRGB to Linear value, when using linear color space (see properties in shader programs).
