Rotate object with drag on window.

Hi bob, welcome to the forum.  I once played with  a "scrub rotater".


Click low on any box, hold the mouse button down, and move the arrow around... the box rotates (in one direction).

It's not exactly what you asked for, but it might work.  The shift/alt/control and click code is not mine... it came from another person's demo.  I just "connected" the onMouseMove trigger/value-changes... to the object rotation actions. 

Hope this helps.

@Wingy: did the link in your post went missing? It sounds like there should be a link but I don't see any.


I tried a very super basic version on my own: http://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#2AKWXH


It only works while dragging on the mesh... it breaks if you drag outside the mesh :P But it could be changed to screen coordinates, too, if you want to drag on the whole screen. Maybe that helps as a super basic idea. As I cant see wingys link, I don't what he did. But I assume it's a lot more sophisticated than what I did quick and dirty :D

I see. As I said, it was just a rough try, there might be even better solutions for the problem, but if you are happy with the result you could mark the topic as answered (there should be a button somewhere).


If you need anything else let us know :) Ohw and don't forget to show us the final result of what you created! ;)
