In my 3D editor i have an Translation gizmo that display the direction which an object is facing. If you select the x axis for example and moved the mouse in the direction of the gizmo it follows that direction. Now the problem that i am having is that if i perform an yaw of 180 degress and the x axis ends up facing the left direction. When i select it and moved the mouse left it end up mirroring instead of moving to the left. I have found that out that my mouse coordinate which i am using as a scale factor to determines whether i moved left or right never changed. So when the x axis values end up been (-1,0,0) for example and when i move my mouse left. it takes the new mouse position and subtract from the old one, i end up with -1 for the mouse as well so when i multiply the mouse delta by the left axis it ends up flipping the axis back to positive. So what i am looking for is a way i can convert my mouse to be in the same space as my camera/object. So to sum it up, i am looking for a way for my gizmos to translate in teh direction that the arrow is pointing too no matter what the orientation of the object or the camera. If anyone can help, i would greatly appreciate it.
