I am trying to figure out how to get current values of Graphics3D
options ViewPoint, ViewVector, ViewMatrix et al, that change when one
uses an ordinary mouse to move and spin a displayed object by
click-and-drag. I tried the obvious things like $ViewPoint, to no
effect. Now, the Front End must know these things, and probably exposes
them in some way, perhaps as strangely-named variables.
The reason to ask is that I want to transform raw input from a 3D mouse
(SpaceNavigator) such that the metaphor that observed object motion
mimics 3D mouse motion regardless of how much (ordinary mouse click and
drag) manipulation of the displayed plot has occurred.
To effect this transform, I need to know the current transform from
object space to user viewport space, so I can back-transform 3D mouse
data from user space to object space.
