Is the result of combining two quaternion rotations the same as that of two matrices and then converting that into a quaternion? I have a quaternion (q1) and rotation matrix (m2) as input for a function (unfortunately non-negotiable) and would like to rotate the initial quaternion by the matrix resulting...

I am currently trying to find an equivalent for the following equation: vec_res = inverse(VM) * (q * (VM * vec_input) * conjugate(q)) where VM is a standard view matrix , q is a normalized quaternion, and vec_input a vector. In the form: vec_res = A * vec_input; or vec_res...

I have 2 objects in 3D space, A & B, and object B is parented to A. Both objects have 3D positions, as well as a Quaternion representing their specific orientations. I have translation working fine, so whenever A moves, B moves. However, I can't seem to get the orientation...

In my code, I have a quaternion that is used for rotation for a camera for the player. Rotation itself seems to work fine, but my directional vectors for moving and to rotate on do not rotate correctly. Quaternion Multiplication: Quaternion Quaternion::operator*(Vector3 other) const { float x_ = w *...

I've been trying to figure out the difference between these, and why ToEulerXYZ does not get the right rotation. Using MathGeoLib: axisX: x 0.80878228 float y -0.58810818 float z 0.00000000 float axisY: x 0.58811820 float y 0.80877501 float z 0.00000000 float axisZ: x 0.00000000 float y 0.00000000 float z 1.0000000...

So the method that I've used so far to rotate objects in JavaFX was that I layered it in 3 groups, each of them with a Rotate attached and locked to a single axis like so: Rotate heading, roll, pitch; Group normalrotate, rollrotate, verticalrotate; heading.setAxis(new Point3D(0,1,0)); normalrotate.getTransforms().add(heading); roll.setAxis(new Point3D(0,0,1)); rollrotate.getTransforms().add(roll);...

I have some initial rotation r0 represented by quaternion and some actual rotation r (also an quaternion). I would like to get the quaternion that represents the delta of rotation. E.g. if r0 stands for 30st OX rotation and r is 50st OX, the rDelta should contain quaternion that represents...

I'm asking a question that has been asked a million times before, but I still haven't found a good answer after going through these and also resorting to other sites: How to rotate a graphic over global axes, and not to local axes? rotating objects in opengl How to rotate...

I would like some help on finding the rotation between two sets of two vectors in 3D as a quaternion. In each pair, the vectors would be at right angles to each other and have unit length (basically two vectors in an orthonormal basis). My current code looks something like...

I'm attempting to add a small value to a World Matrix in order to replicate the accuracy of a fired weapon [pistol, assault rifle] Currently, my World Matrix resides at a Parent Objects' position, with the ability to rotate about the Y axis exclusively. I've done this in Unity3D, running...

My goal: When being rendered, a child object needs to render relative to its parent; thus its own position and orientation need to be relative to its parent My problem: Translations work, but the parent's rotation/orientation isn't correctly being added to a child's transformation calculation; the child rotates on its...

I have two points with fixed distance (e.g. 30 centimeter) and exactly the same orientation in 3D space. The position of point 1 (x1,y1,z1) and orientation of point 1 (represented in quaternion q0, q1, q2, q3) are already known. How can I calculate the position of point 2 ? (No...

Yesterday I have been trying to solve the following problem: calculate the local rotation quaternion for a bone given its global rotation quaternion and the skeleton state. I figured that the global quaternion equals to the parent bone global multiplied by the bone's local quaternion: global = globalParent * local...

I have a (world) matrix, and it applies translation, rotation and scale into an 3D object. It is created with the function XMMatrixTransformation (DirectXMath) and the parameter RotationQuaternion is made by a call to XMQuaternionRotationRollPitchYaw. Then it is stored in a file along with other data. Then I need to...

Let's say I have an object (A) with a position stored as a 3-number vector, and an orientation stored as a quaternion. I have a second object (B) with the same information. Object B is, for whatever reason, suddenly welded to object A. It is now stuck, and should perfectly...

Kalman filters and quaternions are something new for me. I have a sensor which output voltage on its pins changes in function of its inclination on x,y and/or z-axis, i.e. an angle sensor. My questions: Is it possible to apply a Kalman filter to smooth the results and avoid any...

as an Image above i want to rotate the point P1 around unit vector RotationAxis (Red vector in Image and its in Center). in my program (WPF) i Have a Quaternion and a 3DPoint. How can i rotate the Point P1? i tried Matrix rotation but it rotates nothing. Matrix3D...

I'm attempting to rotate a Quaternion up 90 degrees on the Y axis in Away3d. I'm using an ANE to get Quaternion values from device motion, to set the camera view. This rotates the angle up, qu.fromAxisAngle(Vector3D.X_AXIS,Math.PI/2); q.multiply(q, qu ); But then seems to switch the other angles, i.e. now...

I try to implement an FPS camera based on quaternion math. I store a rotation quaternion variable called _quat and multiply it by another quaternion when needed. Here's some code: void Camera::SetOrientation(float rightAngle, float upAngle)//in degrees { glm::quat q = glm::angleAxis(glm::radians(-upAngle), glm::vec3(1,0,0)); q*= glm::angleAxis(glm::radians(rightAngle), glm::vec3(0,1,0)); _quat = q; } void...

I copied a code for conversion of 3D roation matrix to quaternions and back. The same code is used in jMonkey (I just rewrote it into my C++ class). However, it does not work properly (at least not as I would expect.) e.g. I made this test: matrix (a,b,c): a...
