Camera Controller Rotations

Recommended Posts


I am working on a camera controller. I need to make smooth transitions between new setting.

Each setting is stored with the following data:

X (float)

Y (float)

Z (float)

rotX (deg 360)

rotY (deg 360)

rotZ (deg 360)

The camera can rotate in both X Y and Z axis but if I just get one expression right the rest of them should be fine.

Here is an example:

The camera automatically moves forward so we don't need to worry about that.

We need to set the rotation in order to change the direction that camera moves.

I have tried alot of diffrent expressions for this but they always fuck up.

Can anyone help me out here?

Looks as if he wants the math to figure out how to make the camera continue to face along the path... I hate Trig :-P looks like you want a simple rise over run calculation to figure out the required angle. rotation = 90 y/x, if y = 0 then rotation += 0. If y/x = 1 and y <> 0 then $rotation += 45. Something like that?

Edit I guess better would be if y <> 0 then rotation += y/x * 45
