I Quaternion conversion extrinsic to intrinsic

  1. Apr 5, 2016 #1
    Hi All,

    I Have a system which is supplying me with quaternions, working in opengl I am setting the orientation of a model to the quaternion I am given, and it is seen that all changes in pitch are shown as changes in rotation around the opengl x axis (1 is left), all changes in roll are shown as changes in rotation around the opengl z axis (1 is out of the screen) and all changes in yaw are shown as changes in rotation around the opengl y axis (1 is up).

    is there a way to convert this rotation around a fixed axis system to a rotation around a rotating axis system?
