quaternion

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a really simple tutorial on how to use quaternions to calculate coordinates in a move-through-space sort of game. I ran into the gimble lock problem, so I started looking around but I don''t understand any of the tutorials out there. Not even the one on nehe''s site. If I could just find an example without 40 different header files, etc...that would be great

Did you have matrices in school? I don''t, so I tried this link:
http://skal.planet-d.net/demo/matrixfaq.htm

Everything from "What is a matrix" through "What is Gimble Lock" to "How do I use quaternions to perform cubic interpolation between matrices" is explained there.

Very helpful I think!
