Hi Robert et al.
Let me explain what I want to do accomplish an example:
I load a model with no camera manipulator. I know the camera parameters (eye, ctr, up)
that yield a desired pose. I set the viewer camera with those parameters and obtain the
Now I want to assume that I don't know those parameters. A user loads a model with a trackball
manipulator. He / she can manipulate the model until the desired pose is obtained and
recuperate the camera parameters (eye, ctr, up), which should be what I used in the previous
Is that more clear ? How would I achieve this ?

The camera manipulators role is to modifying the view matrix so I'm a
bit perplexed that you are suprised by this.
Also please considering move from SimpleViewer up to osgViewer::Viewer
working as an embedded viewer in 2.x rather than using SimpleViewer as
it only existed for a short while and has been totally superseded.
