Generate Quaternion Conjugate

Group (Subgroup)

Processing (OrientationAnalysis)

Description

This filter will generate the transpose of a [1x4] Quaternion laid out in memory such that < x, y, z >, w. This can be handy when the user wants to convert the orientation transformation to an opposite effect. The algorihtm will calculate the conjugate of each quaternion in the array of input quaternions

NOTES: Internally DREAM.3D assumes that the internal reference transformation is a Sample to Crystal transformation. If the incoming data was collected in such a way that the orientation representation that is stored (Quats, Eulers, Orientation Matrix, Rodrigues) was assumed to be a Crystal to Sample transformation then this filter can be applied to an orientation matrix to convert into a reference frame that DREAM.3D assumes.
