The typical way to do this would be to subclass vtkInteractorStyle and
override the member functions


to swap the functionality of the two. My guess is that you are using the
vtkInteractorStyleTrackballActor, so you could subclass it and swap the
definitions of the above member functions. Then, set an instance of your
new class as the interactor style in your vtkRenderWindowInteractor.

Hope that helps,
