Unigine::Plugins::IG::Converter Class

Warning
You should upgrade to Sim SDK edition to use it.

This utility class is used to perform conversions between different coordinate systems for the IG (e.g. ENU <-> NED, Euler rotation <-> quaternion, etc.).

Notice

COORDINATE_SYSTEM#

NameDescription
COORDINATE_SYSTEM::ENU = 0ENU (East-North-Up) coordinate system. X - right, Y - front, Z - up, default in Unigine. Rotation order: Z -> X -> Y (Yaw-Roll-Pitch)
COORDINATE_SYSTEM::NED = 1NED (North-East-Down) coordinate system. X - front, Y - right, Z - down, default in Unigine. Rotation order: Z -> Y -> X (Yaw-Pitch-Roll)
