My action mapper sends me my analog or joystick feedback on a scale -1 to 1 on both the RightLeft axis and UpDown axis. I managed to create a reasonably smooth camera-relative directional control out of it but I have one small problem left -- character velocity. If I use the magnitude of the original vector the character runs faster for diagonal directions on the analog or joystick. That''s because going straight left(or right) gives me a magnitude of 1.0f(at full speed) and same for straight Up or Down on the analog - BUT at diagonals I have say 1.0f right AND 1.0f up ,which gives me root2 for magnitude which is bigger than 1.0f -- but it should only be 1.0f at any maximum direction. How do I get a magnitude for finding velocity out of the analog or joystick control??? Any ideas????

The directional vector is already normalized.. Er no. That still doesn't get me the velocity. Cuz I need the magnitude so I can extract the velocity. If I normalize the vector the magnitude is always 1.0f so that doesn't work. Am I missing something here?
