pls anybody teach me abt placing this so called 'virtual camera' and also about its projection matrix in detail

i choose direct x 10 because i have bought the book for it .... I have also found that 11 and 10 are almost same (from program code point of view) and i thought it would be easy for me to get used with it.

I believe that DX9 is supported still simply because older cards still cling to it but aren't up to DX10, DX10 is for newer cards on XP, DX11 ships with Win7 only.

Morley, DirectX 10 doesn't work with XP. It was one of the big reasons PC gamers jumped on Vista: the first Windows OS to actually support DX10 code. Anything on XP has to resort to DX9.0c features.

DirectX 11 is able to down-level to DX10 feature levels, and runs on Vista, which is why 11 is more prevalent than 10: if you're targeting DX10, you can use DX11, because you've already excluded XP users.

Rockvignesh25: have you defined your viewport? That helps the rendering pipeline determine where matrix-transformed pixels actually appear relative to the display buffer's borders.

vp.topleftx = 0
vp.toplefty = 0
vp.width = 1600 // my screen resolution
vp.height = 900
vp.mindepth = O.O
vp.maxdepth = 1.0

I wish I had your professor. My professor is quite apathetic about the subject. He only shows up on campus for his one night class and just reads off powerpoint slides. Mind you these slides were already provided to the students by the book, which was a terrible book in my opinion. Luckily I had been self teaching myself for quite a while and was able to help out my fellow classmates. My friend was joking around how it's kind of like "Dumbledore's Army" from Harry Potter haha,

all over the world professors are like that... You know my prof. Taught entire C++ in just 2 hours.. Beginners(who took biology in high school) are almost dead... He did the same thing ...just showed some presentation in one night and finished the portion
