I'm fairly new to Godot but I've used Unity before. I am trying to implement a 3D Mouselook system. In Unity I can get the horizontal Mouse movement with this:

Input.GetAxis ("Mouse X");

What is the equivalent of this in Godot? How do I get the amount of mouse movement? I can't seem to find anything useful under Godot's Input class.

in Engine by


enter image description here

code example use function  unhandledInput for capture mouse motion positon

    public override void _UnhandledInput(InputEvent @event)
    if (@event is InputEventMouseMotion eventMouseMotion)

        vertical = eventMouseMotion.Position.x * 5;

        horizontal = eventMouseMotion.Position.y * 5;

I have figured out how to get mouse movement, but it's not something directly equivalent to Unity's Input.GetAxis("Mouse X").

public override void _Input(InputEvent motionUnknown) {
    InputEventMouseMotion motion = motionUnknown as InputEventMouseMotion;
    if (motion != null) {
        // if we get here, then the input is mouse movement
        // and it's now in the variable "motion"
        // do something with "motion.Relative" which is the movement Vector2
