##### Substance Designer - Discussions - How can I retrieving direction from vector map?

**on:**October 15, 2019, 07:21:58 pm

I am pretty new to fx-map. I have a Fx-map that does iteration. Right now I just put random rotation in the sequence so each iteration is just randomly position and randomly rotate.

Is there a way or function that I can extract the direction from a vector flow map into fx-map? and use it to rotate each iteration?

I have no idea how to do that. I saw there has a sample grayscale node and sample color node. But I have no idea how to utilize them to get the vector rotation data from a flow map then use it as rotation
