    Hey!

    I'm having a problem with Quaternion.Lerp, which causes two errors.

    Here's the code, it's supposed to rotate my enemy.

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. // Set rotation target
    3. rotationTarget = Quaternion.Lerp(rotationTarget, Quaternion.LookRotation(attackTarget.position - myTransform.position), rotationSpeed * speedFactor * Time.deltaTime);
    4.  
    5. // Rotate
    6. myTransform.rotation = Quaternion.Lerp(myTransform.rotation, rotationTarget, rotationSpeed * speedFactor * Time.deltaTime);
    7.  
    It gives me the following errors

    At line 2 in above:
    CompareApproximately (aScalar, 0.0F)
    UnityEngine.Quaternion:Lerp(Quaternion, Quaternion, Single)

    At line 5 in above
    transform.rotation assign attempt for 'Fangtooth(Clone)' is not valid. Input rotation is { NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN }.
    UnityEngine.Transform:set_rotation(Quaternion)

    Any help is much appreciated, I am pulling my hair out.. There's literally nothing on this problem (Searched Google)

    Okay I found the problem..

    Multiplying with speedFactor made it pop up with the error.. So I removed speedFactor
    I think it was because speedFactor was 0, making the whole expression 0.

    I'm having this same issue when I have high time scale values, but I'm not passing 0s as parameters.

    There is a simple fix to it if you are having this error, but you should not get to such a situation anyway, but here you go!
    Code (CSharp):
    1. if (rotation.x + rotation.y + rotation.z + rotation.w == 0)
    2. {
    3.     rotation = Quaternion.identity;
    4. }
