Multiplication of Affine3f with Projective3f fails

Last modified: 2012-03-30 23:24:39 UTC

Hi, I discovered a weird error, summarized by the code snippet below. In my opinion, res1 and res2 should match, but they don't. The error occurs only with an Affine3f on the left of the multiplication and a Projective3f on the right. By the way, the result res2 which is computed as the pure matrix product is correct. Either I get something really wrong here, or maybe there is a bug in the simplifications that Eigen performs for the multiplication of Affine3f*Projective3f. Program: Eigen::Projective3f Proj; Proj.matrix() << 1.54235, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1.54235, 0, 0, 0, 0, -1.0004, -0.020004, 0, 0, -1, 0; Eigen::Affine3f V; V.matrix() << 50, 0, 0, 50, 0, 50, 0, 50, 0, 0, 0.5, 0.5, 0, 0, 0, 1; Matrix4f res1 = (V*Proj).matrix(); Matrix4f res2 = V.matrix() * Proj.matrix(); std::cout << "res1 = " << std::endl << res1.matrix() << std::endl; std::cout << "res2 = " << std::endl << res2.matrix() << std::endl; Output: res1 = 77.1175 0 0 50 0 77.1175 0 50 0 0 -0.5002 0.489998 0 0 0 1 res2 = 77.1175 0 -50 0 0 77.1175 -50 0 0 0 -1.0002 -0.010002 0 0 -1 0 Thanks!!

that's a shame we had such a bug. fixed there: https://bitbucket.org/eigen/eigen/changeset/2bef1d9d1bee/ changeset: 2bef1d9d1bee user: ggael date: 2012-03-30 23:22:29 summary: fix bug 362 and add missing specialization for affine-compact * projective https://bitbucket.org/eigen/eigen/changeset/e3df03351a72/ changeset: e3df03351a72 branch: 3.0 user: ggael date: 2012-03-30 23:22:29 summary: fix bug 362 and add missing specialization for affine-compact * projective (transplanted from 2bef1d9d1bee20fca29ebe715d8a838dd5c10990)
