Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

The QMatrix4x4 class in general is treated as a row-major matrix, in that the constructors and operator() functions take data in row-major format, as is familiar in C-style usage.

Internally the data is stored as column-major format, so as to be optimal for passing to OpenGL functions, which expect column-major data.

When using these functions be aware that they return data in column-major format:

  • data()

  • constData()

Constructs an identity matrix.

Constructs a matrix from the given 16 floating-point values . The contents of the array values is assumed to be in row-major order.

If the matrix has a special type (identity, translate, scale, etc), the programmer should follow this constructor with a call to optimize() if they wish QMatrix4x4 to optimize further calls to translate() , scale() , etc.

Return type

PySide2.QtGui.QMatrix4x4.optimize()

Optimize the usage of this matrix from its current elements.

Some operations such as translate() , scale() , and rotate() can be performed more efficiently if the matrix being modified is already known to be the identity, a previous translate() , a previous scale() , etc.

Normally the QMatrix4x4 class keeps track of this special type internally as operations are performed. However, if the matrix is modified directly with { operator() }{ operator() ()} or data() , then QMatrix4x4 will lose track of the special type and will revert to the safest but least efficient operations thereafter.

By calling after directly modifying the matrix, the programmer can force QMatrix4x4 to recover the special type if the elements appear to conform to one of the known optimized types.

toTransform()

PySide2.QtGui.QMatrix4x4.toTransform()
Return type

PySide2.QtGui.QTransform

Returns the conventional Qt 2D transformation matrix that corresponds to this matrix.

The returned QTransform is formed by simply dropping the third row and third column of the QMatrix4x4 . This is suitable for implementing orthographic projections where the z co-ordinate should be dropped rather than projected.

toAffine()

PySide2.QtGui.QMatrix4x4.toTransform(distanceToPlane)
Parameters

distanceToPlane – float

Return type

PySide2.QtGui.QTransform

Returns the conventional Qt 2D transformation matrix that corresponds to this matrix.

If distanceToPlane is non-zero, it indicates a projection factor to use to adjust for the z co-ordinate. The value of 1024 corresponds to the projection factor used by rotate() for the x and y axes.

If distanceToPlane is zero, then the returned QTransform is formed by simply dropping the third row and third column of the QMatrix4x4 . This is suitable for implementing orthographic projections where the z co-ordinate should be dropped rather than projected.

Parameters
  • left – float

  • bottom – float

  • width – float

  • height – float

  • nearPlane – float

  • farPlane – float

Multiplies this matrix by another that performs the scale and bias transformation used by OpenGL to transform from normalized device coordinates (NDC) to viewport (window) coordinates. That is it maps points from the cube ranging over [-1, 1] in each dimension to the viewport with it’s near-lower-left corner at (left , bottom , nearPlane ) and with size (width , height , farPlane - nearPlane ).

This matches the transform used by the fixed function OpenGL viewport transform controlled by the functions glViewport() and glDepthRange().
