Summary

Function: rotation llAxes2Rot( vector fwd, vector left, vector up );

Returns a rotation that is defined by the 3 coordinate axes

• vector fwd
• vector left
• vector up

All three vectors must be mutually orthogonal unit vectors.

Examples

Notes

Technically, only the first two vectors are needed to define this rotation, which can be done by calling:

llAxes2Rot(fwd, left, fwd % left);
