Hey,

i have the following problem: i have following setup:

The red quad should always keep the position relative to the white quad. I got this working by using the same translation and rotation matrix as the white quad.

The red one “recieves” the matrices from the white one.

Now i want to rotate the red quad around itself. I do it, by adding the amout of degree to the one recieved from the parent object and using it as the values for the rotation matrix:

```
ikarusRotationMatrix:
cos(deg+turnDeg), -sin(deg+turnDeg), 0.0, 0.0
sin(deg+turnDeg), cos(deg+turnDeg), 0.0, 0.0
0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0
0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0
```

deg: the amout the white quad is rotated

turnDeg: the amount the red quad should be rotated

The problem now is, that if i let it rotate, it starts rotating around the center of the white quad.

I now have the question, how i can rotate it around itself but let it stay at the position relative to the white quad?

Source of the VertexShader:

```
#version 150 core
in vec4 in_Position;
in vec4 in_Color;
in vec2 in_TextureCoord;
uniform mat4 window_Matrix;
uniform mat4 ikarus_Rotation_Matrix;
uniform mat4 translation_Matrix;
uniform mat4 ntranslation_Matrix;
out vec4 pass_Color;
out vec2 pass_TextureCoord;
void main(void) {
gl_Position = window_Matrix * translation_Matrix * ikarus_Rotation_Matrix * in_Position;
pass_TextureCoord = in_TextureCoord;
pass_Color = in_Color;
}
```

Thanks,

Josh
