Syntax

float convert(coordinate, fromSystem, toSystem, type, x, y, z)

float[] convert(fromSystem, toSystem, type, coordinates)

Parameters

Returns

The selected coordinate component of the tuple (x, y, z) or the coordinates array, converted from the fromSystem coordinate system to the toSystem coordinate system. The coordinates can either describe angles or a position.

Description

The convert function converts positions and orientations between different coordinate systems.
