Hi, sorry for my uncompleted explanation. Now let's study the
underlying mechanism of "SetOrigin etc." together.
here is the source code of vtkProp3D::ComputeMatrix (vtk 5.4)
void vtkProp3D::ComputeMatrix()
{
if (this->IsIdentity)
{
return;
}
// check whether or not need to rebuild the matrix
if ( this->GetMTime() > this->MatrixMTime )
{
this->GetOrientation();
this->Transform->Push();
this->Transform->Identity();
this->Transform->PostMultiply();
//* Notice This Code segment*
// begin {
// shift back to actor's origin
this->Transform->Translate(-this->Origin[0],
-this->Origin[1],
-this->Origin[2]);
// scale
this->Transform->Scale(this->Scale[0],
this->Scale[1],
this->Scale[2]);
// rotate
this->Transform->RotateY(this->Orientation[1]);
this->Transform->RotateX(this->Orientation[0]);
this->Transform->RotateZ(this->Orientation[2]);
// move back from origin and translate
this->Transform->Translate(this->Origin[0] + this->Position[0],
this->Origin[1] + this->Position[1],
this->Origin[2] + this->Position[2]);
//}end ==> it means: at first, the actor frame is an identity (same with
the world frame), then you have a chance to rotate or/and scale the identity
frame with respect to a point (specified by setorigin) in the world frame.
after that, the usermatrix takes efforts.
// apply user defined transform last if there is one
if (this->UserTransform)
{
this->Transform->Concatenate(this->UserTransform->GetMatrix());
}
this->Transform->PreMultiply();
this->Transform->GetMatrix(this->Matrix);
this->MatrixMTime.Modified();
this->Transform->Pop();
}
}
