Copy node scaling question

scaling down geometry with the copy node feels a bit weird: with 'scale' node I would set scale to 50 and get a half sized object, with copy node that needs to be -0.5 to get the same results, I'm sure there is some good logic behind this, that's why I ask.. thanks!

    You're right this is an inconsistency in NodeBox.

    The copy node uses the actual scaling values, which is that 2 means 200%. The scale uses something akin to percentages and divides by 100 internally.

    I prefer the approach of the scale node since dragging values is easier there. I've added a GitHub issue that tracks this.
