hi all, I'm using the PhysX libraries for collision checking in my project but I come upon a problem... I need to set the matrix of the visual object the same as the matrix of the PhysX actor and that's were it goes wrong : my X-axis is the opposite of the one that PhysX uses so everything is mirrored. for translations, this isn't a problem (just reverse the x value) but for the rotations it is.. so, how can something like this be done? I tried some stuff but it all doesn't seem to work :( thx PS.: I'm not using DirectX / OpenGL and trying to change the direction of the X-axis is NOT an option

This is off the top of my head, kind of a drive-by posting.

Create a scaling matrix M for x=-1, y=1, z=1. This is nice because M==M-1.

Given a rotation matrix R, R' = M*R*M.

I think that should work. If not, hope not too much time's wasted.
