Hey, I have been trying for a while now to manually transform a vertex using the matrices returnd by D3D> To make it a bit more clear, here''s what I am currently doing (PSEUDO CODE): vertex v = vertex to transform matWorld = GetWorldMatrix matView = GetViewMatrix matProj = GetProjMatrix //Concatenate the 3 matrices matWorldView = matWorld * matView matTrans = matWorldView * matProj //Build a 4x1 matrix that represents the vertex mat4x1 = (v.x, v.y, v.z, 1) //Apply transformation to the 4x1 matrix matRes = mat4x1 * matTrans Well, you wont be surprised to know that the above doesn''t work! (otherwise why would I be here ) So what I am wondering, is if anyone could help me, because I finally give up trying to solve it, after a few days of stepping though the code and watching variables! Where am i going wrong? Thank in advance for any help you might be able to give me.

Could it be that you forget to convert from homogenous coordinates back to normal 3D coordinates?


V.x = matRes[0]/matRes[3];
V.y = matRes[1]/matRes[3];
V.z = matRes[2]/matRes[3];

Other than that I can''t see anything wrong with your code.
