This is what I did previously: C = A * B. Where those are all matrices. That worked fine. Now what I'm doing is:
C.rotation = A.rotation * B.rotation; C.translation = A.translation + B.translation; C.scale = A.scale * B.scale;
Rotation is a quaternion, translation and scale are vector3s. When I combine these 3 components of C into a matrix again: Matrix.Scaling(Scale) * Matrix.RotationQuaternion(Rotation) * Matrix.Translation(Translation) the result is wrong, and my model looks like a collapsed blob.
I'm not sure if this matters, but the original info coming from the model file is a matrix, so I have to decompose the matrix into the 3 component parts on load, which I then store and use for these calculations.
Anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?
