I went ahead and grabbed 3D Math Primer For Graphics and Game Development, because I heard it can help me understand Matrix's, vertices, etc.

I am an absolute beginner basically, slowly learning how to use basic stuff. And as I am reading through chapter 4, the code starting on page 57 has me lost.

I have never used any of those keywords before, and I somewhat understand WHAT the code is doing, by making the triangles, but if there was an assignment to make a simple triangle/camera etc, like the code shows. I would not know how to do any of it.

Is there anything that I can do to understand how to use these words, like Matrix, effect, etc. Because I am just seemingly lost when it comes to using the code.

I have that book...p.57 is in chapter 5....the distance formula. But maybe I can help if I could see what code you are talking about.
Do you have yahoo?

-edit- Oh you mean chad carters book for the workshop. Nevermind. Posted Image

But if you have yahoo or msn maybe we could go over this stuff.

I got your message when I was on windows live, it wouldn't let me reply, and when I clicked on your name it took me to a web page because of your email being yahoo or something. And Pidgin is always screwy when it comes to small stuff, so idk. I sent you a friends request, maybe if I do it it'll work.
