XMQuaternionRotationAxis function

Computes a rotation quaternion about an axis.

Syntax

XMVECTOR XM_CALLCONV XMQuaternionRotationAxis(
  FXMVECTOR Axis,
  float     Angle
);

Parameters

Axis

3D vector describing the axis of rotation.

Angle

Angle of rotation in radians. Angles are measured clockwise when looking along the rotation axis toward the origin.

Return Value

Returns the rotation quaternion.

Remarks

The DirectXMath quaternion functions use an XMVECTOR 4-vector to represent quaternions, where the X, Y, and Z components are the vector part and the W component is the scalar part.

If Axis is a normalized vector, it is faster to use XMQuaternionRotationNormal

Platform Requirements
