mouse 3d drag
« on: May 26, 2011, 05:02:55 AM »
Hi,
 
 Following a post for dragging cameras, http://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?topic=270.msg1073#msg1073

I created an action to drag a mouse on a 3d plane and record the resulting world position and drag vector.

more to come on this, as I have a working example, but need to prepare it for distribution on this forum, will do a screencast I think.

 There is one big issue with this, that I will certainly fix in few days. Currently, it only adjust the plane position, not the normal of it, which means that during drag, the camera and plane can not have their relative rotation changed, only the relative position.

Comments and feedback welcomed as always.

 
Code: [Select]
/// <summary>
/// 25 of may 2011
/// contact@fabrejean.net
/// http://www.fabrejean.net
///
/// This action compute the drag and worldposition of the mouse (or any position on screen)
/// It assumes the following:
/// -- Enter this action ( State ) when the drag is supposed to start.
/// -- quit this action when the drag is suppose to finish.
///
/// currently. It accomodates groundplane point changes to have a consistent drag computation if the camera is moving while you drag.
/// NOTE: this is not the best way. the plance normal changes is not taken in consideration ( and so is the camera rotation ).
/// IMPROVEMENTS: ideally, the plane should be defines as a transform, and the drag expressed in that transform reference to allow full flexibility
/// if camera or plane is rotated during the drag. GEt in touch with me if you need that improvement and did not succeed in trying yourself to implement it.
///
/// If camera is not defined, it will use the camera it is attached to or as a last resort the main camera.

Looks awesome! But yeah, just looking at the code/comments and without a screencast it's pretty hard to figure out how it's supposed to be used and what for. Any minor example should do, I know these screencasts can take a looong time to make right. Anyways, looking forward to it :)

Hi,

 just to keep things easily accessible, I just did a touch based dragging system to touch and drag a cube in the 3d environment:
