OrbitController in Qt3D is missing

  • I'm starting to use qt3d which seems awesome to me. However, astonishingly, the Qt3D module is devoid of documentation! Almost nothing! Qt is famous for its comprehensive documents, so why is Qt3D so poorly documented?

    Anyway, I go with it. To know better about what Qt3D contain, I decided to read the ***.qmltypes directly. However, I encountered a question: I found that there is a OrbitController in Qt3D.Extras, but when I use it in my Quick application, the console complains that there is no such type! Sure that I've imported Qt3D.Extras 2.0

    My questions are: first, how do you learn Qt3D? second, how to use OrbitController?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    The Qt3D module is currently a Technical Preview so it's current state is not yet representative of the final product. Don't worry about that.

    In any case, you should bring the OrbitController question to the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt3D's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.
