hi everyone,
I was just wondering about the free flight commands in db pro - when u rotate an object ro camera using them, it does not effect their angle. in db, however, when u use theses commands it DOES effect the angle. now, i wanted to know is this a bug or a feature?!

seriously, is it supposed to work like that or not?

cheers,
iak.

In my opinion the rotation caused by the free flight commands could never be correctly reported as x,y & z rotations. The only way to know correctly where an object is pointing after pitch, turn etc is using it's orientation matrix (up, forward and left or right vectors).
