Hi, here's my problem

i have a point (x,y,z) which is a look-from point of a camera

and the angles around the axis (AngX,AngY,AngZ). I want to determine the vector of the direction of where the camera look, or the lookAt point.

I'm not good at all in mathematics

Help me Please

i hope my english is not too bad

Thkx

then you can express the entire statement as a single equation:

r = (x, y, z) + t(a, b, c)

where the (a, b, c) is a vector that describes the direction that the camera is

facing, from the origin (0, 0, 0).

So once you have worked out the simplest direction vector for the camera, then

you have an equation of a line for the camera's view, and you can use that

equation to find the point that is seen by the camera.

To find any general point, then just replace t with a number and you will get a

point, and if you have a point, see if it can fit into the equation, and if it can

then the camera can see it.

If you have any more problems with this, send an e-mail to

There's an angle that doesn't affect the looking point, which is called roll angle. You must know the rotation order because this can affect the final result, and the axis system is important too because each one gives a different result. So you can give more details on your axis system and angles description and rotation order. For example the earth can be described with spherical coordinates system, and you can imagine the center is the look-from point of your camera, and one city in the surface is the looking point, so longitude and lattitude can give you the vector, for example the projection of that vector in the vertical axis of the earth gives you the Y component of your vector, so it can be

R * sin ( latitude )
