Need help with axis and object positioning.

ok. This is just a question about positioning my objects.

so i have my ship positioned on the screen:


and the camera is supposed to be behind it (and it is), 0, 0)

what i cant understand is why it is behind the ship if the playership’s y axis value is 42… shouldnt it be the z axis affected?

In Panda, by default, the Y axis is forward, and the Z axis is up (and the X axis points to the right). This is called a Z-up coordinate system, specifically a right-handed Z-up coordinate system.

Other common coordinate systems are right-handed Y-up and left-handed Z-up. There is no one universal convention that everyone agrees on.


ok thats not a problem i have just never seen it before
