Reminder Rotation matrix Homogeneous coordinates (review) 4X4 matrix used to represent translation, scaling, and rotation a point in the space is represented as Treat all transformations the same so that they can be easily combined We talked about: Translation, Rotation and Scale matrices

Reminder cont’ Composite transformations A series of transformations on an object can be applied as a series of matrix multiplications : position in the global coordinate : position in the local coordinate

The problem Finding the most natural and compact way to present rotation and orientations Orientation interpolation which result in a natural motion A closed mathematical form that deals with rotation and orientations (expansion for the complex numbers)

Angles used to rotate about fixed axes Orientations are specified by a set of 3 ordered parameters that represent 3 ordered rotations about fixed axes, ie. first about x, then y, then z
