I am trying to have my camera move in a given azimuth and elevation.

I have used the following formulas which have not worked for me.

Any suggestions?

posx = posx + cos(azimuth)*sin(elevation);

posy = posy + sin(azimuth)*sin(elevation);

posz = posz - cos(elevation);

I have modified to use

posx = posx + cos(elevation)*sin(azimuth);

posy = posy + sin(elevation)*cos(azimuth);

posz = posz - cos(elevation);

This seems to work but when the azimuth gets too high or low, say above 90, the camera starts turning the opposite direction.

Itâ€™s called gimble lock. Search the boards or google it for details and solutions.
