moveBody

Class: Aero.Animation
Package: Aero

Move body in animation object

Syntax

moveBody(h,idx,translation,rotation)
h.moveBody(idx,translation,rotation)

Description

moveBody(h,idx,translation,rotation) and h.moveBody(idx,translation,rotation) set a new position and attitude for the body specified with the index idx in the animation object h. translation is a 1-by-3 matrix in the aerospace body coordinate system. rotation is a 1-by-3 matrix, in radians, that specifies the rotations about the right-hand x-y-z sequence of coordinate axes. The order of application of the rotation is z-y-x (R-Q-P).

Input Arguments

hAnimation object.
translation1-by-3 matrix in the aerospace body coordinate system.
rotation1-by-3 matrix, in radians, that specifies the rotations about the right-hand x-y-z sequence of coordinate axes.
idxBody specified with this index.

Examples

Move the body with the index 1 to position offset from the original by + [0 0 -3] and rotation, rot1.

h = Aero.Animation;
idx1 = h.createBody('pa24-250_orange.ac','Ac3d');
pos1 = h.Bodies{1}.Position;
rot1 = h.Bodies{1}.Rotation;
h.moveBody(1,pos1 + [0 0 -3],rot1);
