Can anyone see an error in the multiply or rotate functions ?

Hi When I rotate around Z my points seem to scatter after a little while. Am I doing something wrong or is it a number precision problem? Thanks for the help

How do you use your matrix multiplication ?

Do you take the points from the last frame and rotate them by some amount ? This might result in scattering.

Afternoon, Joachim.

Sounds like it could be a Gimbal-Lock problem.

Is it possible to show the code which does the actual updating (i.e. what calls RotateZ)?

I've got a snippet which obtains Gimbal-Lock, however there's no point posting it if it wouldn't suit how you're positioning and moving/rotating objects (and, NO, it doesn't use quaternions;p )
