i am getting a gimbal lock when looking 90° from the side at my tank using the method from this tutorial, lecture 108.
What does that mean ?
Well, in start position the camera works all fine, azimuth and elevation.
If i now turn via azimuth directly to one side of the tank using no elevation at all, i then can not elevate thne camera anymore, the camera just rolls a litte bit left and right, like a plane when you play around with the ailerons.
The link from TigerC12, well the video #12 you need to look at is the one before actually, helps to fix this, thanks a lot mate.
In my honest opinion i think Ben wanted to introduce the course to gimbals in general, but this does not work here with the camera.
I am looking forward to a solution for the springarm/cam combo just based on gimbals, since i hate the gimbal lock in an eternal way as a long term 3D model and animation developer in Ogre3d before.
Hoping that Ben is reading this and finding a general solution for us based on gimbals for animating stuff corrrectly on sockets in the future.
Regards, keep digging and see you on the other side…
