View Full Version : Rotation when flipping up vector from Y to Z

I have a rotation problems.

I have the camera set up so that up vector is Z, -X is forward and right is Y. I have models that are exported in another coordinate system where Y is up, -Z is forward, X is right.

My challenge/problem is with rotation. How to do correct rotation in this case without changing the coordinate system of objects that I import. Scale and transform are working as they should.

So far I have tried swapping Y and Z axis in the rotation matrix manual, doing the rotation matrix separately, doing the rotation as we read control file, flipping Z and Y rotation axis, changing the matrix to

| 1 0 0 |
| 0 0 1 |
| 0 1 0 |

etc.

PS. I dont want to change the coordinate system of the object files that I import now and when I write in the control file rotateY it will rotate the object in my Y axis not the object Y axis.

This is the part of code I am trying the transformations

for(int i = 0; i< controls.size(); i++) {
meshStruct tempMesh;

{
cout<< "Mesh " << controls[i].path << " loaded sucesfully." << endl;
} else {
cout<< "Mesh " << controls[i].path << " loaded failed." << endl;
}

tempModelMatrix = mat4(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f,
0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f,
0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f,
0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);

//mat4 tempModelMatrixFlip = mat4(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f,
// 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f,
// 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f,
// 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
//tempModelMatrix *= tempModelMatrixFlip;

tempModelMatrix = glm::translate(tempModelMatrix, controls[i].translate);

tempModelMatrix = glm::rotate(tempModelMatrix, radians(controls[i].rotation.x), vec3(1.0, 0.0, 0.0));
tempModelMatrix = glm::rotate(tempModelMatrix, radians(controls[i].rotation.y), vec3(0.0, 1.0, 0.0));
tempModelMatrix = glm::rotate(tempModelMatrix, radians(controls[i].rotation.z), vec3(0.0, 0.0, 1.0));

mat4 r = mat4(1.0f);
mat4 rx = mat4(1.0f);
mat4 ry = mat4(1.0f);
mat4 rz = mat4(1.0f);
rx = rotate(radians(controls[i].rotation.x), vec3(1.0, 0.0, 0.0));
ry = rotate(radians(controls[i].rotation.y), vec3(0.0, 1.0, 0.0));
rz = rotate(radians(controls[i].rotation.z), vec3(0.0, 0.0, 1.0));
r = rx * ry * rz;

Fixed the problem after going through some emails with the professor and had a small error when calculating rotation matrix. I was doing it in the reverse way

tempModelMatrix = glm::rotate(tempModelMatrix, radians(controls[i].rotation.x), vec3(1.0, 0.0, 0.0));
tempModelMatrix = glm::rotate(tempModelMatrix, radians(controls[i].rotation.y), vec3(0.0, 1.0, 0.0));
tempModelMatrix = glm::rotate(tempModelMatrix, radians(controls[i].rotation.z), vec3(0.0, 0.0, 1.0));
