in reply to Re^2: Rotate a 3D vector

in thread Rotate a 3D vector

To find the angle between the two vectors, you need to normalize them (so they have length of 1 unit) by doing this (v is the vector you want to normalize):

Then find the dot product of the two normalized vectors (Va and Vb):float distance = sqrt(v.x*v.x + v.y*v.y + v.z*v.z); v.x = v.x/distance; v.y = v.y/distance; v.z = v.z/distance;

This gives you the cosine of the angle, so simple do:float dotProduct = Va.x*Vb.x + Va.y*Vb.y + Va.z*Vb.z;

This will give you the angle. I think this post was a bit late :Sacos(dotProduct);
