I am streaming data into unreal from an inertial sensor. It outputs UnNormalized quaternion data in the format:
X = 6561.00000 Y = 6691.00000 Z = 2118.00000 W = 2078.00000
I am applying this to an actor, in c++, using:
And it gives me strange gimbal issues.
When i rotate pitch 90 degrees, it rotates in Pitch.
I rotate 90 degrees in Yaw.
When i rotate pitch 90 degrees, it rotates in Roll.
I have tried Converting it to a FRotator and flipping axes, applying axes one at a time and switching the rotation order. I have tried setting the Actor to 0,0,0 every tick then adding the rotation value. No matter what I do, I see the same thing. Any help here would be very much appreciated!
Could it be a handedness problem? What can i try here?
