Shifts two-dimensional Cartesian coordinates along the x- and y-axes.

This node shifts points within a fixed coordinate system.

Shift amount along each of the axes.

The sign of **dx** or **dy** is set to positive if you shift the coordinate in the default direction of Cartesian coordinate shift and negative if you shift the coordinate in the opposite of the default shift direction.

Shift amount along the x-axis.

**Default: **0

Shift amount along the y-axis.

**Default: **0

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an **error in** input and an **error out** output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of **error in** specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of **error in** in a standard, predictable way.

**Default: **No error

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

**error in** input and an **error out** output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of **error in** specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of **error in** in a standard, predictable way.

The following illustration demonstrates how this node shifts two-dimensional Cartesian coordinates in the default direction of Cartesian coordinate shift, which means the signs of **dx** and **dy** are both set to positive.

Before the shift, the coordinate of point *P* is (*x*, *y*). After the shift operation, the coordinate of point *P* is (*x*', *y*'), which is defined by the following equation:

$\{\begin{array}{c}x\prime =x+dx\\ y\prime =y+dy\end{array}$

where

- dx is the shift amount along the x-axis
- dy is the shift amount along the y-axis
