[osg-users] Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: CallBack issue

Hello Ulrich,

So you mean  that the setMatrix() function after  the callback is not making
any difference to  the scene.

But i get different scene when i toggle the matrix setup after the callback.

With setMatrix() after the callback i get two cows side by side and the left
one is rotating around z

Without setMatrix() after the callback i still do get two cows side by side
and the left one is rotating around z by the left ones head is cut by the
window view.

First of all, the fact that you set a translation matrix is irrelevant.  The
callback (as you have posted in a previous mail) will always overwrite
whatever matrix you set during setup.

I understand the point you're trying to make.  What I'm saying is that when
you use MatrixTransform->setMatrix(m) you're loosing anything that has been
set before.  If you want to preserve that (i.e. the translation in your
example) you have to take care of that yourself.

>From what I grok you're looking for a way to keep the translation part and
only change the rotation.  You could try to do something like:
 Matrix m = mt->getMatrix();

Or use decompose(), change the rotation and re-assemble the matrix: scaling,
rotation, transform and all.

Or pass the translation to the update callback so that it can assemble and
set the proper transformation matrix.  Or split the translation and the
rotation into different MatrixTransforms.

Many roads lead to Rome.
matrixTransform->setMatrix(Matrix::makeRotate(...)) is not one of them. ;-)

Hope this helps,
