Why are my cubes randomly rotating near the end of their animation? Also, why is the flat, stationary plane drawing with one edge"bending" into the origin?

First, when you draw you call



glRotatef(30, 1, 1, 0)

 

And after drawing you call:



glRotatef(-30, -1, -1, 0)

 

. To reverse the rotation, you only need to change the sign of the degrees, not the axis, so it should be:



 glRotatef(-30, 1, 1, 0);

 

To avoid this (and to make it easier), instead of doing this:





glTranslatef(self.position[0], self.position[1], self.position[2])
glRotate(30, 1, 1, 0)

... draw ...

glRotate(-30, 1, 1, 0)
glTranslatef(-self.position[0], -self.position[1], -self.position[2])

do





glPushMatrix();
glTranslatef(self.position[0], self.position[1], self.position[2])
glRotate(30, 1, 1, 0)

... draw ...

glPopMatrix();

 

This way, between glPushMatrix() and glPopMatrix(), you can do whatever transformations you want, that it won't affect the previous matrix.

 

I don't know if this is exactly your problem, but when you draw the cubes, you're translating them first and then rotating.

In this case, the farther away the cube is from the origin, the longer will be the rotation, because it will be rotating around the axis and not around itself.

Again, i don't know if this is intentional or not, if it is then forget it.

 

I don't really know Python, but this seems to be a problem with OpenGL, so i hope it helps.

 

Also, unless the OpenGL spec is different for Python, shouldn't the glRotate() call be glRotatef() (or glRotated() if your using doubles)?

Python doesn't really make a distinction between float and double, being dynamically typed, so I'd assume it chooses the proper function under the hood and casts as needed. Having glRotatef and glRotated exposed wouldn't be pythonic smile.png

Cool beans. You answered my question and you helped me a lot with the info on Push and Pop funcs. I had read about them but I didn't really pay attention. Patience is not my strong suit. :P As for calling rotation before translation, it wasn't intentional, but I didn't really care. I have read in the bookmthat provided a large part of this code, that you should rotate before translation because trans affects rotation, but for now, I was just worried about fooling around with rots. As for the diff between rotatef and rotated,

I have noticed no I'll effect's in the program.

 

TY for your help! biggrin.png

Also, as for the ground_1 object rendering weirdly....I screwed up the order of the verts. Instead of writing them in the order they appeared in the face, I simply wrote each verts in the order they appeared in list of all verts. The result was that the last 2 verts are actually supposed to be switched, but I failed to do so. So IT WAS rendering properly, just not how I expected it to. :P
