What does the Math node's Fraction operation do?

In the manual’s entry for the Math node, the Fraction operation is a link to a Wikipedia entry about Rational Functions, which seems too complex an answer (if any, at all), given that this operation is part of the set of rounding ones. Surely a more straightforward one is possible.

I’m studying a material that uses this node and so I need to know what it does.

(The description in the compositing nodes section suffers from the same problem)

This should answer your question :slightly_smiling_face:

Apparently it’s similar to modulo but without generating negative values. Quite handy as I had to deal with that several times. Good to know there’s actually a quick solution!


Fraction gives fractional part of the fractional numbers.

1.5 => Fraction => 0.5
