Py5Graphics.translate()

Specifies an amount to displace objects within the Py5Graphics drawing surface.

Description

Specifies an amount to displace objects within the Py5Graphics drawing surface. The x parameter specifies left/right translation, the y parameter specifies up/down translation, and the z parameter specifies translations toward/away from the screen. Using this function with the z parameter requires using the P3D renderer.

Transformations are cumulative and apply to everything that happens after and subsequent calls to the function accumulates the effect. For example, calling translate(50, 0) and then translate(20, 0) is the same as translate(70, 0). This function can be further controlled by using Py5Graphics.push_matrix() and Py5Graphics.pop_matrix().

This method is the same as translate() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see translate().

Underlying Java method: PGraphics.translate

Syntax

translate(x: float, y: float, /) -> None
translate(x: float, y: float, z: float, /) -> None

Parameters

  • x: float - left/right translation

  • y: float - up/down translation

  • z: float - forward/backward translation
