Hi,

I've undestood how the frustum have to be set (http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=585641), but now I have a trouble to rotate the camera on the X-axis around an object centered in (0, 0, 0).

I rotate on Y-axis modifying only the position X and Z with sin and cos.
I rotate on Z-axis modifying only the up vector X and Y params.

Initialy the camera is in position (0, 0, 2) looking to (0, 0, 0) with up vector (0, 1, 0).

If I rotate on the X-axis modifying only the Y and Z params there's a moment, when view vector (at - pos) is equal to up vector (0, 1, 0) and equal to (0, -1, 0), where the camera rotates 180º on Y-axis...

Sure this question has been answered before a lot of times...


Thanks.

You want to do the transformations all together

Vector3( sin( pitch ) * sin( yaw ), cos( yaw ), cos( pitch ) * sin( yaw ) )
