This engine takes as input a rotation, and decomposes it into an axis value and a rotation angle (in radians).

The input can have multiple values, allowing the engine to decompose several rotations in parallel.


SoMFRotation rotation
Rotation to be decomposed.


(SoMFVec3f) axis
Axis of rotation derived from the input.

(SoMFFloat) angle
Angle (in radians) derived from the input.
