AE(nged)                     BRL-CAD User Commands                    AE(nged)

NAME
       ae - Sets the view orientation for the mged display by rotating the eye
       position about the center of the viewing cube.

SYNOPSIS
       ae [-i] {azimuth} {elevation} [twist]

DESCRIPTION
       Set the view orientation for the mged display by rotating the eye
       position about the center of the viewing cube. The eye position is
       determined by the supplied azimuth and elevation angles (degrees). The
       azimuth angle is measured in the xy plane with the positive x direction
       corresponding to an azimuth of 0<deg>. Positive azimuth angles are
       measured counter-clockwise about the positive z axis. Elevation angles
       are measured from the xy plane with +90<deg> corresponding to the
       positive z direction and -90 corresponding to the negative z direction.
       If an optional twist angle is included, the view will be rotated about
       the viewing direction by the specified twist angle. The -i option
       results in the angles supplied being interpreted as increments.

EXAMPLES
       The examples show how to change views by entering azimuth and elevation
       angles, adding a twist angle, and having the angles supplied being
       treated as increments.

       Example 1. Top view

       mged> ae -90 90

       Example 2. Right-hand side view

       mged>ae 270 0

       The view is from the right-hand side.

       Example 3. View from a specific azimuth and elevation with a twist
       angle.

       mged>ae 35 25 10

       The view is from azimuth 35, elevation 25, with a view rotated by 10
       degrees.

       Example 4. The azimuth and elevation angles supplied are treated as
       increments.

       mged>ae -i 0 0 5

       Rotates the current view through 5 degrees about the viewing direction.
