Set or get pitch angle of camera for Satellite Scenario Viewer
Set Camera Pitch Angle of Satellite Scenario Viewer
Create a satellite scenario object.
sc = satelliteScenario;
Launch the Satellite Scenario Viewer.
v = satelliteScenarioViewer(sc);
In the Satellite Scenario Viewer, set the pitch angle of the camera to 60 degrees.
pitch = -60; % degrees campitch(v,pitch);
pitch — Pitch angle of camera
-90 (default) | scalar the in the range [–90, 90]
Pitch angle of the camera in degrees, specified as a scalar in the range [–90, 90]. By default, the pitch angle is –90 degrees, which means that camera points directly toward the surface of the globe.
outPitch — Camera pitch angle
numeric scalar in the range [-90, 90]
Camera pitch angle in degrees, returned as a numeric scalar.
When the pitch angle is near –90 (the default value) or 90 degrees, the camera loses one rotational degree of freedom. As a result, when you change the roll angle, the heading angle might change instead. This phenomenon is called gimbal lock. To avoid the effects of gimbal lock, call the
