Hello everyone, this is my fist post, sorry if it is in the wrong section.
I am desperate for help, ive been trying to solve this problem for 2 days and its driving me crazy.
I Am working with Directx11 Api, for collisions i am using xnacollisions.h/cpp that can be found in the directxSDK examples;
xnacollisions provide me with all sorts of collision Boxes/spheres, it also allows me to create a Frustum from the camera view.
here is my problem.
(all functions with prefix XNA, are from xnacollisions)
XNAComputeFrustumFromProjection, creates the frustum from the camera values.
i then need to set the origin of the m_camFrustum, which is the position of the camera.
and then i also need to set the orientation of m_camFrustum which is the Quaternion representation of angles.
The camera in this game im working on is based on Euler angles.
and i found ways of converting euler to Quaternion.
The problem is i can not get the angles from my camera. i need to extract them from the matrix..?
another way i was thinking is calculating the angles(x,y,z) from the camera position to the cameraLookAt Position.
as i understand function XMMatrixLookAtLH() calcualtes taht angle and stores it in the cameraMatrix automatically.
How can i get the angles and store them in quaternion representation in order to rotate the frustum accordingly to the camera rotation?
Thanks, and sorry for mistakes if there are any.
