All of a sudden i cant set the angle properly:

\>  

`

but the result in cinema is
2578.31 °
0
-2578.31 °

Whats that ?? I guess i just didnt notice that i am doing something wrong because i did a random plugin and thus didnt check the values as it looked ok to me...

is there a solution somewhere? why cant i set the same values via script that i can set inside cinema via the gui??

thanks for your help,
ello
thanks for your patience 🙂

cheers,

Simple: All rotations are in Radians, not degrees.

I use these inline converters when the angles are variable:

inline Real ToRad(Real r) { return ((r)*0.017453292519943295769236907684886f); }
inline Real ToDeg(Real r) { return ((r)*57.295779513082320876798154814105f); }

thank you very much, it works but wow, where do those numbers come from?

PI/180 and 180/PI. Instead of doing the floating point math over and over (even inline), I simply put in constants. More precision than ever needed and beyond that of a 32-bit IEEE floating point encoding but I simply copy-pasted the values from the Windows Calculator. 🙂
