I see, so it's because i'm messing with the view message to change the angle towards the object in my gem scene. So gemlist_info is always referring to the camera in gem, that's important to understand and it means i can't use it what I thought I'd use it for. Actually I just wanted to rotate a point in the space and I was too lazy for the algebra. There must be some abstractions for that and I think I saw some in the PdMtl… tomorrow.
