Hi,

This is my first post in the forum. I am trying to use SpatialTransform to translate an object from one place to the next. However, I would like to be able to see the movement on the screen. I have looked at the testSpatialTransform, but I am rather lost with the for loop.

private void setTranslation()

{

Vector3f transRef = new Vector3f();

float translation;

//iterate over the range, go over by one step to accommodate mathematical error

for(float timeElp=0;timeElp<(this.time+(this.time/this.timeDivision));timeElp+=(this.time/this.timeDivision))

{

translation = (float)((timeElp/this.time)*(Math.PI*2));

//correct for mathematical errors

if(translation>(Math.PI*2))

translation=(float)Math.PI*2;

transRef.x = (float)(translation)*2;

transRef.y = (float)(translation)*2;

transRef.z = (float) (translation)*2;

/* transRef.x = (float)Math.sin(translation)*5;

transRef.y = (float)Math.cos(translation)*2.5f;

transRef.z = (float)Math.cos(translation)*5;

*/

//this.spt.setPosition(0,time,transRef);

this.spt.setPosition(0,timeElp,transRef);

}

/* transRef.x = (float) 2;

transRef.y = (float) 2;

transRef.z = (float) 2;

this.spt.setPosition(0,time,transRef);

*/

}

When I use the following:

transRef.x = (float) 2;

transRef.y = (float) 2;

transRef.z = (float) 2;

this.spt.setPosition(0,time,transRef);

The box is moved into that position at start up without showing the animation. I had the following assumptions.

setPosition(int indexInST, float time, Vector3f position)

Sets object with index indexInST to translate by position at time time.

means the following:

Translate the object 0 to the position in the time indicated. Or do we have to do it manually?

Thanks.
