pointsAtZ

The pointsAtZ attribute represents the y location in the coordinate system established by attribute primitiveUnits on the <filter> element of the point at which the light source is pointing, assuming that, in the initial local coordinate system, the positive z-axis comes out towards the person viewing the content and assuming that one unit along the z-axis equals one unit in x and y.

Only one element is using this attribute: <feSpotLight>
