  VMatrix Entity:GetBoneMatrix( number boneID )


Returns the transformation matrix of a given bone on the entity's model. The matrix contains the transformation used to position the bone in the world. It is not relative to the parent bone.

This is equivalent to constructing a VMatrix using Entity:GetBonePosition.

This can return the server's matrix during server lag.
