Keep doing it wrong (Directions)?

Recommended Posts

Hello,
I have generated a path which is 100% right....
But when I animate it, the agent is wagging at its tail (again?!)

 

It is basically interweaving between 0.7 and 0.9 during a diagonal move

What I did was to extract the direction like this

this->m_right = D3DXVECTOR3(this->m_localMatrix._11, this->m_localMatrix._12, this->m_localMatrix._13);
this->m_up = D3DXVECTOR3(this->m_localMatrix._21, this->m_localMatrix._22, this->m_localMatrix._23);
this->m_direction = D3DXVECTOR3(this->m_localMatrix._31, this->m_localMatrix._32, this->m_localMatrix._33);            

And the mover like this

D3DXQUATERNION qFinal, qStart, qEnd;
// Get Start Rotation
double fOldDir = l_transform->m_MotionInfo.fStartDir;
fOldDir = CapRadian(fOldDir);
D3DXQuaternionRotationAxis(&qStart, &D3DXVECTOR3(0, 1, 0), fOldDir);                            
                                

// Get End Direction
float fNewDir = l_transform->m_MotionInfo.fEndDir;
fNewDir = CapRadian(fNewDir);
D3DXQuaternionRotationAxis(&qEnd, &D3DXVECTOR3(0, 1, 0), fNewDir);
                                
// Interpolate
D3DXQuaternionSlerp(&qFinal, &qStart, &qEnd, l_transform->m_MotionInfo.fS);                            

                                 
                                l_transform->setRotation(qFinal);                              
 
TRACE("t:" << l_transform->m_MotionInfo.fS);
TRACE("Start Orientation: " << fOldDir);
TRACE("Desired Orientation: " << fNewDir);

Could anyone shed some lights on this?

 

I am wondering why this works

D3DXVECTOR3 axis;
FLOAT angle;
D3DXQuaternionToAxisAngle(&m_rotation, &axis, &angle);

this->m_direction.x = angle;

 

and this won't -> the local matrix is collapsed with scaling, position etc

this->m_right = D3DXVECTOR3(this->m_localMatrix._11, this->m_localMatrix._12, this->m_localMatrix._13);
this->m_up = D3DXVECTOR3(this->m_localMatrix._21, this->m_localMatrix._22, this->m_localMatrix._23);
this->m_direction = D3DXVECTOR3(this->m_localMatrix._31, this->m_localMatrix._32, this->m_localMatrix._33);          

Thanks
Jack
