[Update REQ 5013]: GeomView query
Jim, Geomview uses a tree of coordinate sytems which looks like the following: Universe | World (= g0) /|\ / | \ / | \ g1 g2 g3 ... (arbitrary number of "geoms" in the World) The Universe system is the root system. If the target object is the World (this is the default), then mouse motions affect the position of the World system wrt the Universe system. If the target object is one of the geoms, then mouse motions affect the position of that geom wrt the World system. It sounds like your problem has to do with manipulating the wrong coordinate system, but without more information I can't be sure what is happening. I gather from your description that you are using the Geomview command language to control your object's flight path. I'd suggest double-checking which coordinate systems you are modifying. If you're still confused (which is understandable --- the manual glosses over these points), send us some more details about which commands you're using and we'll try to help further. Note: it's actually possible for each geom to consist of an entire tree of objects by using the INST and LIST formats, but Geomview doesn't let you modify the transformations in that tree via the mouse. There is a way to modify them with the command language, however; if this is what you're doing (using the "define" command), let us know. --Mark
