Code for Parented mesh rotating around Free Camera


Recommended Posts

Dear all

Can somebody point out the code segment in the source code of BABYLON.js  or the commands that make a mesh parented to a FreeCamera rotate smoothly with the FreeCamera. The reason why I am asking this is because if I have a Physics impostor in the mesh and I parent it to the Free Camera, cannot control meshes position after parenting, so I am thinking of NOT parenting and rotating it manually.

If the mesh is physics it is control by physic engine. So you cannot directly control it with parenting

Only way is to use things like:

impostor.setLinearVelocity(new BABYLON.Vector3(0,1,0));


impostor.setAngularVelocity(new BABYLON.Quaternion(0,1,0,0));


impostor.applyImpulse(new BABYLON.Vector3(10, 10, 0), sphere.getAbsolutePosition());


mesh. updatePhysicsBodyPosition (this one is useful if you change position of your mesh and you want to synchronize the impostor)
