Hi,

the problem description states that the chaser camera rotates a maximum of 30 degrees between images. Does the 30 degrees refer to the rotation of the individual axes (xyz) or what do they refer to?

Hi @hackspiel,

The “rotation” here refers to the angular displacement of a single rotation about a fixed axis. In 3D space, any rotation is always around a single axis of rotation, which may have any spatial orientation. This is called the “axis–angle representation” of a rotation.

In general, one may represent a rotation as three sequential rotations about a fixed set of Cartesian x-y-z axes (often called “Euler angles”). However, according to Euler’s rotation theorem, any sequence of rotations in 3D space can always be equivalently represented by a single rotation about some fixed axis.
