Transform API Changes

The names of several Transform methods have been changed in order to better reflect their actual function and reduce potential semantic confusion. Many of these changes are breaking and old projects will have to be updated.


  • Float type has been added to wrap f32 or f64 for Transform coordinates.
  • GlobalTransform has been removed, and merged into Transform.
  • set_* translation methods have been renamed to set_translation_*
  • *_local transforms have been renamed to append_*.
  • *_global transforms have been renamed to prepend_*.
  • pitch, yaw, and roll methods now use x, y, and z axis respectively.
  • set_position has been renamed set_translation.
  • Method aliases for 2D rotation have have been added.
  • set_rotation methods have been added.
  • euler_angles method has been added.

Float Type

A wrapper type around f32 and f64. It is used to hide the actual type being used internally. Mostly used with the Transform type. The default type is f32 and you can switch to the f64 type by enabling the "float64" feature gate.

Renamed Transform Methods (Breaking Changes)

  • set(x|y|z) to set_translation(x|y|z)

    -transform.set_xyz(0.2, 1.0, 0.8);
    +transform.set_translation_xyz(0.2, 1.0, 0.8);
  • _local to append_

    -transform.move_local(Vector3::new(5.0, 2.0, 3.0));
    +transform.append_translation(Vector3::new(5.0, 2.0, 3.0));
    -transform.move_along_local(Vector3::new(3.0, 2.0, 1.0), 4.0);
    +transform.append_translation_along(Vector3::new(3.0, 2.0, 1.0), 8.0);
    -transform.rotate_local(Vector3::new(2.0, 2.1, 3.0), 8.0);
    +transform.append_rotation(Vector3::new(2.0, 2.1, 3.0), 8.0);
  • (pitch|yaw|roll)_local to append_rotation_(x|y|z)_axis

  • _global to prepend_

    -transform.move_global(Vector3::new(5.0, 2.0, 3.0));
    +transform.prepend_translation(Vector3::new(5.0, 2.0, 3.0));
    -transform.move_along_global(Vector3::new(5.0, 2.0, 3.0));
    +transform.prepend_translation_along(Vector3::new(5.0, 2.0, 3.0));
    -transform.rotate_global(Vector3::new(0.2, 0.4, 0.6), 0.4);
    +transform.prepend_rotation(Vector3::new(0.2, 0.4, 0.6), 0.4);
  • (pitch|yaw|roll)_global to append_rotation_(x|y|z)_axis

  • translate_(x|y|z) to prepend_translation_(x|y|z)

    -transform.translate_xyz(0.4, 2.4, 3.2);
    +transform.prepend_translation_xyz(0.4, 2.4, 3.2);
  • set_position to set_translation

    -transform.set_position(Vector3::new(0.3, 0.2, 4.1));
    +transform.set_translation(Vector3::new(0.3, 0.2, 4.1));

New Transform Methods

  • Set Rotation

    transform.set_rotation_euler(2.1, 3.4, 8.7);
  • 2D helper functions

    • rotate_2d, an alias for prepend_rotation_z_axis

    • set_rotation_2d, an alias for set_rotation_z_axis

  • Euler

    • Get the Euler angles of a transform's rotation.

      let (x, y, z) = transform.euler_angles();
