  1. Good day, Sir. First, I want to say Thanks to everyone, who spent time to read this, I will be glad and happy to hear any advices or notes about this issue. Here is a PG: https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#AI1MQC#2 Please, hide the SetEnviroment(), getPointsArray() and cameraMoveAnimation() functions bodies to make code more readable, I specially out them from main code. As you can see, there is 2 important lines: 82 and 83. Each points from "points" array is a real data from real project, that is not random numbers. So, the camera should move from: point1 to point2, then point2 to point3, then point3 to point4, and so on. There is no problems in start points, it's moving smoothly, but at point7 to point8 (and some others) camera rotates around itself. (Playground setted by default to reproduce this). It look like... flipping possible. I am using pivot method to create camera, and I can not use ArcRotateCamera in real project, because in some points it's broken because of gimbal look, for example, at point8 as I remember, it will dispose, and then appear, ArcRotateCamera was first, what I tried. So, the question is: how to prevent camera flipping around itself? ===================== upd: I tested a little more, if I am using lookAt method without animation and just setting new quaternion, it reproduces the same problem, but I don't have any idea why it happens and why it's changing rotation angle. ======================= upd2: I made additional example, which shows problem from outside: https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#X66D1S#1 As you can see, big red sphere doing strange movement but if you change animation arguments in lines 82 and 83 from points[7], points[8] to points[6], points[7], sphere will do exactly what I needed, so what is it? Why it happens? How can I prevent this?
  2. https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#PP962K#13 I tried to make rotation from point1 to point2 to point3 in Oxy plane as you can see by coordinates, but after point2 the camera starts to choose a strange path out of Oxy. Why it happens?
  3. Good day everyone, here is playground attempt: https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#74G81U I'm trying to make movement from point1 to point2 by arcus of sphere, and the core goal is to prevent gimbal lock in points of pi/2. Example demonstrates my attemps to make movement from the end of red line to the end of green line though rotating with quaternions around their cross product. The question is: should start quaternion be from target.position.toQuaternion() ? which property should be used in animation object? Thank you for any advices and notes. Theoretically, to rotate object around some axis via Quaternion I should make quaternion with rule (w, v), where w = cos(a/2), and v = n*(sin/a2), where a - is my angle, n - rotation axis, then convert it to the rotation matrix, and use this matrix to prevent gimble lock on the position transform. But in animation it is not working, I do not understand why. I am sure I am doing something wrong with BABYLON API, but I can not find the problem.
  4. Hi there, by default it seems the ANIMATIONTYPE_QUATERNION slerps between 2 quaternions the short way (270 degrees turns into -90 for instance). If I compute the angle between the 2 quaterinon and determine that it's more than 180, how would I go about slerping it the long way? I tried looking at the code but variable names such as num1 num2 num3 num4 num5 num6 didn't really help Any help appreciated! Cheers, Quaternion.Slerp = function (left, right, amount) { var num2; var num3; var num = amount; var num4 = (((left.x * right.x) + (left.y * right.y)) + (left.z * right.z)) + (left.w * right.w); var flag = false; if (num4 < 0) { flag = true; num4 = -num4; } if (num4 > 0.999999) { num3 = 1 - num; num2 = flag ? -num : num; } else { var num5 = Math.acos(num4); var num6 = (1.0 / Math.sin(num5)); num3 = (Math.sin((1.0 - num) * num5)) * num6; num2 = flag ? ((-Math.sin(num * num5)) * num6) : ((Math.sin(num * num5)) * num6); } return new Quaternion((num3 * left.x) + (num2 * right.x), (num3 * left.y) + (num2 * right.y), (num3 * left.z) + (num2 * right.z), (num3 * left.w) + (num2 * right.w)); };
