View Full Version : rotation



11-03-2003, 07:54 AM
I am having major problems with rotations.

I have my object and can now transform it (Thanks for the help). I am now struggling with rotatating it.

I want to perform the rotation on the object and then transform it to another part of the screen. So far all I am getting is the rest of my scene rotating and the item I want to move staying still.

Any help as always is much appreciated

Thanks
Sax

If you read through this forum, this topic is been answer 1000's of times.

You can use glPushMatrix / glPopMatrix to save and load the matrix.

Using these commands you can choose what objects are effected by what rotations and translations.

Example:

glPushMatrix(); // Save Matrix
glTranslate(....);
glRotate(....);
Draw_something();
glPopMatrix(); // Load back Matrix to past state.

Now the next thing you draw will not be effect by the translation or rotation done between the Push/Pop Matrix.

So for each object you draw that you do not want their matrix operations to effect objects after,use Push/Pop.
