Hi!

I have the following problem. I want to zoom to my object. I have the camera in sphere coordinates. So the camera position has 2 angles and a length. For zooming I want to change the length of the camera, so that the object has the maximal expansion on the screen. The object is a bridge. So it has 8 corner points, which I transformed into screen space. This is what I tried to get the length, but it is not working correct. Can anyone help me? Can anyone see the problem:

float xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax, zmin, zmax;
xmin = - m_width / 2;
xmax = m_width / 2;
ymin = -(m_height * scale_factor - m_height/2);
ymax = m_height /2;
zmin = -m_length / 2;
zmax = m_length / 2;

std::vector<D3DXVECTOR4> points;
D3DXVECTOR4 point;

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmin, ymin, zmin,1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmin, ymin, zmax, 1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmin, ymax, zmax,1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmin, ymax, zmin,1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmax, ymin, zmin, 1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmax, ymin, zmax, 1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmax, ymax, zmax, 1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

point = D3DXVECTOR4(xmax, ymax, zmin,1.0f);
points.push_back(point);

D3DXMATRIX worldMatrix, projectionMatrix, viewMatrix;
m_Begrenzung->GetWorldMatrix(worldMatrix);
m_D3D->GetProjectionMatrix(projectionMatrix);
m_Camera->GetViewMatrix(viewMatrix);

for(int i = 0; i < points.size(); i++)
{

D3DXVec4Transform(&points.at(i), &points.at(i), &worldMatrix);
D3DXVec4Transform(&points.at(i), &points.at(i), &viewMatrix);
D3DXVec4Transform(&points.at(i), &points.at(i), &projectionMatrix);
points.at(i).x = points.at(i).x / points.at(i).w;
points.at(i).y = points.at(i).y / points.at(i).w;
points.at(i).z = points.at(i).z / points.at(i).w;
points.at(i).w = 1.0f;

}

xmin = xmax = points.at(0).x;
ymin = ymax = points.at(0).y;

for(int i = 1; i < points.size(); i++)
{
if(points.at(i).x < xmin)
xmin = points.at(i).x;
if(points.at(i).x > xmax)
xmax = points.at(i).x;
if(points.at(i).y < ymin)
ymin = points.at(i).y;
if(points.at(i).y > ymax)
ymax = points.at(i).y;
}

float width, height, scale, length;

if(abs(xmax) > abs(xmin))
width = abs(xmax);
else
width = abs(xmin);

if(abs(ymax) > abs(ymin))
height = abs(ymax);
else
height = abs(ymin);

if(width > height)
scale = 1/width;

else
scale = 1 / height;

length = m_Camera->getLength();
m_Camera->setLength(length / scale);

This should probably be placed in general programming(or math?), coding horrors isn't exactly about helping programming problems, it's more about the bad(and sometimes amazing) things people have/seen created.
