Is it possible to calculate the transformation matrix based on two 3d points and if so how? I am trying to place a tube part between these two 3d points and need the transformation matrix to position/place the part properly.
well the translational part of the matrix is easy, just put the midpoint in the 4th row or col (depending on if you use column-major- or row-major-matrices) of the matrix. if p is the midpoint,
As game developers, we quickly learn that Artificial Intelligence (AI) doesn’t need to be so tough. To reference Space Ghost: “Moltar, I have a giant brain that is able to reduce any complex machine into a simple yes or no answer. (http://www.youtu…
Performance in games development is paramount: every microsecond counts to be able to do everything in less than 33ms (aiming at 16ms). C# foreach statement is one of the worst performance killers, and here I explain why.
Although Jacob Bernoulli (1654-1705) has been credited as the creator of "Binomial Distribution Table", Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) did his dissertation on the subject in 1666; Leibniz you may recall is the co-inventor of "Calculus" and beat Isaac…
