Numeric Conversions

When you wire numeric data to a node that expects a different numeric data type, the node coerces the data to the most precise type.

A red coercion dot appears on the node input where the coercion takes place.

In the following diagram, a red coercion dot appears on the Add node because the node expects two inputs of matching numeric data types but receives a double-precision, floating-point number and an integer. Because input 0 (a double-precision, floating-point number) is more precise than input 1 (an unsigned, 32-bit integer), the node coerces input 1 to a double-precision, floating-point number.
