That is a very satisfying answer. Thanks a lot.

Thanks guys,


I'm using this for actual geometry, not hulls.


The intersection method is working, It gave me the idea to do something similar using the boolean operator in 3ds, it has the same effect.


Thanks again.

Hi Buckeye,


You pretty much solved my problem with your first paragraph. I was using the wrong axis for the local translation value. I also feel like I finally have a pretty good understanding of what it means to go from one bone space to another.


My goal was to setup a simple bone chain by hand so I could learn the mechanics of creating the offset (inverse bind) matrix as well as interpolating bones between poses to move the model vertices; and also to know exactly what data I should be getting from my FXB converter which brings me to this...


I know you don't use FBX but please bear with me. I can't figure out how to get the local transforms for each bone in the bind pose, or if they are even accessable. I can get the inverse world transforms of each bone and I already know the hiearchy. Can I do my own math to get the local bone transforms so I can compute the offset matrices myself ? If I can do that then I think I am all set.


I'm sorry if I got you a little annoyed with reusing variables and stuff, I will now be much more explicit in my code. It's like you said, it's better if I help others help me.


Thanks a lot man.

eee, were you able to figure it out ?


In Topic: Y-Axis Rotation from Matrix

Hey guys,


I didn't think it was a good thing but figured I'd give it a shot. I'm trying to test something that's not working and think it might help.


A typical example is this:


D3DXMatrixTranslation(&T, 2.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
D3DXMatrixRotationY(&R, -D3DX_PI*0.5f);
D3DXMatrixInverse(&M, NULL, &M);
float r=GetYRotation(&M); // the helper I want to make
// if it worked properly it would do this:
D3DXMatrixRotationY(&R, D3DX_PI*0.5f);
float r=GetYRotation(&M);
// r would equel pi*0.5


That's all I would be using it for.
