Pitch of a users avatar.


This is the value set for AW_MY_PITCH when the user called aw_state_change. It is given in units of one tenth of a degree and should not be assumed to be in the range of -1800 to 1799.

Note that bots can pitch their avatars to be upside down, and they will be shown as such in a browser.

For SDK build 27, world build 44, browser build 430; and later: It is also used by aw_avatar_set to force users into changing the pitch of their avatar.


When the user is a browser:

Minimum:-900 tenths of a degree (looking up)
Maximum:900 tenths of a degree (looking down)

When the user is a bot:

Minimum:-2147483648 tenths of a degree
Maximum:2147483647 tenths of a degree
