I happened to notice a conflict with pg.183 versus pg.193 with regard to the View Transformation. In the first section, you state the appropriate order is "R = T * X * Y * Z" but then in the later section where you give an example, you use this order: R = T * Z * Y * X Could you clarify which is the ''correct'' order for multiplying them, I''d appreciate it, thanks.

HunterTKilla: while that rule works for normal math...for Linear algebra it does not. The order in which you multiply matrices produces different results. Make up 2 separate 2x2 matrices and multiply them in both orders, you will see that they produce different resulting matrices. Jim where are you?

its basically like this.
T* x*y*z

look at x*y*z as a seperate piece cause they are all teh same, they are just (rotation values)?, so the order of x,y,z is really up to u. if u want to rotate 10 units x then 10 units z, ur order would be x*z but if you wanted 10 z then 10 x ur order would be z*x

so you would use t,xz and t,zx depending on what you needed to do

[edit] realized that x,y,z is for rotation ... not coordiantes
