XMMatrixRotationAxis method

Builds a matrix that rotates around an arbitrary axis.

  [in] XMVECTOR Axis,
  [infloat    Angle
);

Parameters

Axis [in]

Vector describing the axis of rotation.

Angle [in]

Angle of rotation in radians. Angles are measured clockwise when looking along the rotation axis toward the origin.

Return value

Returns the rotation matrix.

Remarks

If Axis is a normalized vector, it is faster to use the XMMatrixRotationNormal function to build this type of matrix.
